Shooting trial: Accused weren’t there for a burger, trial told
Oct 25 2008 by Sam Casey, Huddersfield Daily Examiner
CLAIMS by two men accused of attempted murder that they went into Huddersfield for takeaway food when a man was shot were lies, a court heard.
Prosecutor Tom Bayliss was summing up the prosecution case against James Collier, Carl Hughes and Bradley Okoro at Bradford Crown Court.
Hughes, 31, of Abbey Road, Fartown, Okoro, 22, of New Hey Road, Oakes, and Collier, 27, of Stoney Cross Street, Taylor Hill, are all charged with trying to kill Damian Munroe in Huddersfield on April 22, 2006.
Sheffield man Mr Munroe was hit in the head with a bullet as he sat in a Jeep at Cross Church Street in the early hours incident.
All three defendants deny attempted murder, attempted grievous bodily harm with intent, violent disorder and possessing a firearm.
Okoro is not in court and is not represented, but the other two defendants had claimed in earlier hearings that they had gone to the Dixie Chicken takeaway on Cross Church Street for food.
