Brother 'can't recall his killing'.

THE brother of former EastEnders actress Gemma McCluskie, pictured, told a court he had no recollection of killing her or dismembering her and dumping the body in a canal.

Tony McCluskie said the last thing he remembered was grabbing his sister's wrists as she wielded a knife at him and threatened to stab him on March 1 last year.

The 35-year-old admits killing Miss McCluskie but denies murder, saying he has no recollection of what happened after he grabbed her.

Miss McCluskie's torso was found in a suitcase in the Regent's Canal in east London, followed by her limbs in plastic bags. Her head was found six months later.

The 29-year-old played Kerry Skinner in the BBC soap in 2001.

The trial continues today.
