Evidence in the trial of four men accused of murdering a man near Ipswich railway station is expected to continue next week following a four day break due to the ill health of a juror.

The juror has been unable to attend court this week and it is now hoped that evidence in the case will continue on Monday.

Before Ipswich Crown Court are 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.

All four deny murdering 41-year-old Dean Stansby, from Trimley, on February 8 last year.

Ruby has also denied 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 from the “AJ and Sky” ring.

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