A JURY trying four men over the murder of Yorkshire police officer Sharon Beshenivsky during a bungled armed robbery was starting its second day of deliberations today.
Pc Beshenivsky was killed and her colleague Pc Teresa Milburn, of Birstall, was seriously injured when they were shot outside the Universal Express travel agency in Morley Street, Bradford, on November 18 last year.
Mr Justice Andrew Smith has told the jury of six women and five men to take as much time as they need in their deliberations during the 10th week of the trial at Newcastle Crown Court.
He urged them to reach unanimous verdicts.
The court heard that 38-year-old Pc Beshenivsky, from Keighley, was shot in the chest at close range and her 37-year-old colleague, Pc Milburn was also gunned down.
Despite seeing her colleague's head "flop" to the side and coughing up blood herself, Pc Milburn managed to send a Code Zero alert over her police radio indicating an officer had been shot.
Yusuf Abdillh Jamma, 20, of Whitmore Road, Small Heath, Birmingham, admits robbery and two firearms offences, but denies murder and two further firearms offences.
Raza Ul-Haq Aslam, 25, of north London, Faisal Razzaq, 25, and his 26-year-old brother Hassan, both of east London, all deny Pc Beshenivsky's murder, robbery and four related firearms offences.
