A jury at Maidstone Crown Court has retired to consider its verdict in the trial of four members of the same family accused of murdering a relative.

Jack Treeby, 43, died after being run over with a Range Rover in Tovil, near Maidstone, last December.

His brother Bill Treeby, 50, Bill's wife Charity Treeby, 51, and their sons Billy Treeby, 29, and George Treeby, 23, all of Paddock Wood, deny murder.

Kent police were called to Quarry Road just before 1900 GMT on 27 December.

The four, of Queen Street, also each face a charge of attempting to murder Jack Treeby's brother Gary, and causing grievous bodily harm with intent.

They are also accused of the attempted murder of Jack Treeby's son, Jack, and attempting to cause him grievous bodily harm.

The family deny all charges against them.
