A WITNESS in the Janet Fleming murder trial denied that a property where two alleged murderers and robbers went was a crack cocaine house and that he had supplied drugs to them and the woman who lived there.

Leon Sobers, 23, of Birkfield Drive, Ipswich, and Damien Duberry, 21, of Morland Road, Ipswich, are accused of murdering barmaid Janet Fleming in December last year at Harleys pub in Ipswich and robbing the temporary landlord, Andrew Hull, of a bracelet and £2,845 in cash on December 10 last year.

Giving evidence at the Norwich Crown Court trial, Anthony Braithwaite said that he had received an early morning call from Leon Sobers who owed him £60 and that he went to Carla Evans' address to collect the money.

He said that Duberry was there as well as Sobers and that Sobers produced the money from his pocket and gave it to him.

He denied that he had gone to the flat to either supply drugs to Carla Evans, or that he went there to collect money that he was owed for drugs, and said that he did not want to answer any questions connected with drugs.

He said that he was a former boyfriend of Carla Evans and denied that he had supplied drugs to her or that the house was a crack cocaine house.

The case continues.
