Jamie Dack: Bin murder trial jury discharged

Jamie Dack The burnt body of Jamie Dack was found in an industrial bin in Southampton

The trial of three people accused of murdering a man whose burnt body was found in a bin has been stopped and the jury discharged "for legal reasons".

The body of Jamie Dack, 22, was dumped in an industrial bin in Southampton and set alight over Easter weekend.

Ryan Woodmansey, 31, Andrew Dwyer-Skeats, 26, and Donna Chalk, 21, will now face a retrial.

Lee Nichols, 28, has pleaded guilty to murder and will be sentenced following the retrial.

The three defendants, who had been on trial at Winchester Crown Court, are also accused of perverting the course of justice by disposing of the body and cleaning up the scene of the killing.
