A COURT case caused a Huddersfield street to be sealed off as jurors went to examine the scene of an alleged murder.
Sharon Wright, 23, and her then boyfriend, 22-year-old Peter Seaton, are both accused of murdering Wright’s daughter, Leticia, at a house on Almondbury Bank between Moldgreen and Almondbury.
The trial is now in progress at Bradford Crown Court .
The judge, barristers and jury visited the tiny two-bedroomed house yesterday afternoon.
The judge, Paul Walker, was the first to arrive and looked around the house.
Minutes later the jury arrived in a minibus under police escort and the steep road was sealed off while they went into the end-terraced home.
The house has wooden windows with white paint peeling from them and an overgrown front garden.
Pegs remain on the washing line outside.
At the back the tiny house is a thickly wooded area falling down a steep ravine and the former doorway there is bricked up like others in the same row.
The prosecution has alleged that Leticia was bitten, burned with cigarettes and beaten while living with the couple at Wright’s house on Almondbury Bank.
Both have denied the charge.
