Ignore your emotions, jury warned.
Trial judge Mr Justice Moses warned the jurors yesterday that they must ignore emotion over the tragic deaths of Jessica Chapman and Holly Wells to reach their verdicts.
He told the jury that they were the judges of the facts. "You decide where the truth lies. No more and no less is required of you."
In the case of alleged killer Ian Huntley, the judge said the jury could return verdicts of murder or manslaughter on either or both girls, of manslaughter by gross negligence in the case of Holly, or find him not guilty of killing either girl.
