JURORS are today deciding the fate of three men charged in connection with a fatal nightclub shooting.
Shane Thomas, 24, of Longroyd Bridge is accused of murdering Michael Hanley outside Sheridan's in Ravensthorpe on December 27, 2005.
The 23-year-old from Harehills, east Leeds died after being shot in the stomach following a brawl at the nightclub.
Thomas, his half-brother Jamie Hislop, 22 from Sheepridge and 21-year-old Berry Brow man Igor Simic are also accused of conspiring to pervert the course of justice.
They deny all charges. Hislop was cleared of the killing last week, while 19-year-old Darren Foley of Dalton changed his murder plea to guilty earlier in the month-long trial.
Judge Peter Fox QC finished his summary yesterday and sent the jury of six men and six women to consider their verdicts at 3.16pm.
He told them that a unanimous verdict was required on each charge.
At 4.30pm the jury returned to court 8 and Mr Fox asked the foreman if any verdicts had been reached.
When the foreman replied no, the jurors were sent home for the day.
Mr Fox reminded them: "Do not discuss this case with anyone at all. This is a particularly vulnerable point in the proceedings, so mum's the word."
The jury restarted its consideration at 10.30am today.
Earlier the judge had finished summing up the evidence in the trial, including Thomas's testimony from the witness box and police interviews with Hislop and Simic, who both declined to testify in court.
The case continues.
