Update: Manslaughter jury sent home
THE jury in a Nailsea manslaughter trial has been sent home for the day as its members have not yet been able to reach a decision.
The 12 men and women are yet to decide whether they believe Stephen Snook is guilty or not guilty of the manslaughter of 50-year-old Alec Farley.
During the evening of June 23, Mr Farley was either pushed or punched by Snook, aged 46 of Load Lane, Bridgwater, during a confrontation outside The Queens Head pub in High Street.
He fell on to paving slabs and hit his head, causing him to fracture his skull and die in the early hours of the following day.
Snook’s trial began on May 9 and numerous witnesses who were at the pub at the time were called to give evidence.
