Train murder trial: "Judge will accept majority decision"

Published by the Eagle Radio News Team at 2:04pm 12th July 2019. (Updated at 2:47pm 12th July 2019)

A judge in the trial of a man accused of stabbing a Guildford dad to death on a train in Surrey has told jurors she'll accept "a majority decision". 

Darren Pencille, 36, allegedly attacked IT consultant Lee Pomeroy, 51, on a service to London Waterloo in January, in a row over aisle blocking. 

Pencille, of no fixed abode, has denied murder.

His girlfriend Chelsea Mitchell, 27, of Farnham, Surrey, has denied assisting an offender.

An Old Bailey jury was sent out to consider its verdicts on Tuesday afternoon.

At 1pm on Friday, trial judge Mrs Justice Cheema-Grubb told jurors she would accept verdicts on which at least 10 of them were agreed.
