The jury in the trial of six defendants accused of murdering Ipswich teenager Tavis Spencer-Aitkens is expected to retire to consider its verdicts today.
Judge Martyn Levett spent yesterday continuing his summing up to jurors and will continue to remind the panel about the evidence they have heard in the three month trial today.
Before Ipswich Crown Court are Callum Plaats, of Ipswich, Aristote Yenge, 23, of Spring Road, Ipswich, Adebayo Amusa, 20, of Sovereign Road, Barking, Isaac Calver, 19, of Firmin Close, Ipswich, a 16-year-old boy, who cannot be identified because of his age, and Leon Glasgow, 42, of no fixed address.
They have all denied murdering Tavis in Packard Avenue, Ipswich on June 2.
During the trial the prosecution has alleged the attack on Tavis was the result of rivalry between gangs for what J-Block perceived to be a loss of respect following a row in Ipswich town centre.
