The jury has gone out in the trial of a 22-year-old man charged with killing his 19-year-old girlfriend.

Jack Wall, of Hadrian's Walk, Stevenage, denies murdering Amelia Arnold, on 8 November, at their home, but has admitted manslaughter.

Blackfriars Crown Court heard he hit her on the head eight times using a 'dumbbell-like' object. He said he lost control during an argument.

Ms Arnold's body was found in Hatfield, three days later.
