JURORS considering their verdict in the trial of a man accused of murdering missing book-keeper Suzanne Pilley have gone home for the night.
Judge Lord Bracadale, who completed his legal directions to the eight men and seven women this morning, told them to resume their deliberations tomorrow morning.
He added that they should not discuss the case with anyone else.
David Gilroy, 49, is on trial at the High Court in Edinburgh where the case entered its 17th day.
He denies murdering Ms Pilley, 38, in Thistle Street, Edinburgh, or elsewhere in Scotland, by unknown means on May 4 2010.
He further denies attempting to defeat the ends of justice between May 4 and May 6, 2010, by concealing Ms Pilley’s body and transporting it to various locations in Scotland in the boot of a car.
