Suzanne Pilley murder trial prosecution evidence ends

Suzanne Pilley David Gilroy is charged with killing Suzanne Pilley in Edinburgh or elsewhere in Scotland

The Suzanne Pilley murder trial has finished hearing evidence for the prosecution.

The Edinburgh office worker went missing on 4 May 2010. Her body has never been found.

Legal argument has been taking place at the High Court in Edinburgh before the defence begins its case.

Ms Pilley's work colleague and former lover David Gilroy denies murdering the 38-year-old in Thistle Street or at another location.

On Friday the Crown withdrew a number of charges against Mr Gilroy. However, he remains accused of Ms Pilley's murder and concealing her dead body.

The trial was adjourned until Monday.
