A JURY is considering its verdict in the trial of a young Harpenden man accused of the murder of a former seaman.
Daniel Gorman, aged 22, of Longfield Road, was sentenced in 2004 to six years in a young offenders institution after being found guilty of inflicting grievous bodily harm with intent on 57-year-old Edward Nelson.
But Mr Nelson, who was left in a persistent vegetative state, died in 2006 and Gorman, who lived in Lowestoft at the time of the attack, was rearrested and charged with murder.
It has been alleged that Mr Nelson was attacked because of unfounded claims he was a child molester.
