The jury in the trial of a 16-year-old who is accused of murder has retired for the evening.

Uransetseg Tserendorj, 49, was pronounced dead in hospital on 29 January 2021, nine days after being stabbed near the IFSC.

The boy, who was 14 at the time and cannot be identified because of his age, has pleaded not guilty to murder but guilty to manslaughter.

The jury of seven women and five men began its deliberations yesterday.

This morning, the jury made a request to the court for the legal definitions of murder and manslaughter.

After hearing legal arguments from both sides, Ms Justice Mary Ellen Ring ordered a copy of her charge in this case be given to the jury to clarify the definitions.
