April Jones murder case: Her blood found 'around suspect's home'


A forensics expert says blood matching April Jones's DNA was found at several locations around the home of the man accused of murdering her.

Emma Howes told the jury at Mold Crown Court the blood was found on the floor in Mark Bridger's living room.

She said it was a one-in-a-billion chance the blood was from anyone else.

Mr Bridger, 47, of Ceinws, Powys, denies abducting and murdering April, who went missing on 1 October 2012 near her home in Machynlleth.

Cemlyn Davies reports.
