A man accused of encouraging the killing of a Trimley man has chosen not to give evidence during his trial.

Twenty-five-year-old Amiadul Islam, of London, is one of four men who have denied murdering 41-year-Old Dean Stansby in Ancaster Road, Ipswich, on February 8 last year.

Also before the court are Jason Ruby, 45, of Risby Close, Ipswich, Daniel Kaganda, 24, of London, and Tecwyn Parker, 48, formerly of Downside Close, Ipswich.

Ruby, Kaganda and Parker have all given evidence during the trial but today Michael Bromley-Martin for Islam, said his client wouldn’t be giving evidence.

The court has heard that Mr Stansby, who lived in Trimley, had come into Ipswich on the evening of his death to buy drugs from the “AJ and Sky” supply ring.

Parker, Kaganda and Ruby allegedly confronted Mr Stansby in retaliation for him allegedly trying to rob Parker of drugs on an earlier occasion.

Islam was allegedly in telephone contact with them and encouraging what was happening.

The trial continues.
