JURORS in the trial of two men accused of murdering a Suffolk charity worker are due to continue their deliberations today.

One of the jurors in the trial of Robert McCarry, 37, of Vernon Street, Ipswich, and Paul Waters, 29, of Sandpiper Road, Ipswich, fell ill during deliberations yesterday and the rest were sent home.

Trial judge John Devaux sent the jury home at about 2.45pm so the juror could be taken to hospital by a medically qualified juror.

It is expected that they will resume this morning.

Both defendants have denied murdering Nicola West, 34, of Leatherbottle Hill, Little Blakenham. McCarry has also denied raping Miss West and Waters has denied attempting to rape her. Both men have denied perverting the course of justice after Miss West's death in February 2007 and McCarry has denied conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.
