Evidence in the trial of four men accused of murdering a man near Ipswich railway station has been delayed for a further day due to the ill health of a juror.

It is hoped the case will continue at Ipswich Crown Court on Friday.

Jason Ruby, 45, of Risby Close, Ipswich, Tecwyn Parker, 48, of Downside Close, Ipswich, Daniel Kaganda, 24, of London and Amiadul Islam, 25, of London, deny murdering Dean Stansby, 41, from Trimley, on February 8 last year. Ruby also denies conspiracy to supply heroin and crack cocaine.

The court has heard that Mr Stansby came into Ipswich on the evening of his death to buy drugs.

Jacob Hallam, prosecuting, said Parker, Ruby and Kaganda had apparently gone to confront him in retaliation for an earlier incident in which he had allegedly tried to rob Parker of some drugs.
