Off-Topic: Brian Farmer Murder Trial, Day 13
Today no new ground was covered. Miss Montgomery continued to question Vaughan Davies about the reason for his lies in his original police statements and reports to his social workers.
When questioned by Mr. Lynch, Vaughan said that he had never seen Peter Knowles before the court case began.
Mr. Evans returned to the matter of Vaughan's lies, claiming that Vaughan had been inventing stories to throw the police off track in their investigations. Based on the CCTV evidence Mr. Evans claimed that Vaughan left Brian's flat on May 6th 2012, not May 7th as Vaughan had claimed. I fail to see the importance of this.
The evidence was concluded today. Tomorrow the prosecution and the defence lawyers will present their closing arguments.
