Gun used in killing, murder jury told

PUBLISHED: 13:44 24 October 2001 | UPDATED: 10:43 03 March 2010

A JURY at Norwich Crown Court was told it could deduce that a gun was initially used to attack Ipswich barmaid Janet Fleming, and as she fell to the ground she was kicked in the head.

A JURY at Norwich Crown Court was told it could deduce that a gun was initially used to attack Ipswich barmaid Janet Fleming, and as she fell to the ground she was kicked in the head.

Elizabeth Marsh QC also told the jury in the prosecution's closing speech at Norwich Crown Court, that they had to be sure that the robbers who raided Harleys pub were Leon Sobers and Damien Duberry.

Sobers, 23, of Birkfield Drive and Duberry, 21, of Morland Road are both accused of murdering Janet Fleming outside the Stoke Park pub on December 10 last year.

They both deny the charge and a further charge robbing temporary landlord Andrew Hull.

The defence has offered no evidence.

Miss Marsh said: "You must look at each defendant separately and the evidence against each defendant separately.

"On December 10, 2000 there is no great dispute about what happened. That there was a robbery there is no doubt.

"That during the course of the robbery there was excessive, gratuitous and significant violence which was capable of causing significant harm to Andrew Hull is not challenged."

She also said the fact that a gun was produced as a weapon was not challenged and neither was the fact that the safe was emptied of its contents.

She added that it was evident that Janet Fleming had returned to the scene but the reasons for her return were not clear.

She added that while Leon Sobers remained in the pub with Andrew Hull, Damien Duberry went outside and attacked Janet Fleming.

The case continues.
