Jurors are deliberating in the case against two men accused of involvement in the gang murder of cyclist Kyron Lee.

Elias Almallah, 22, of Eltham Avenue, Slough, and Fras Seedahmed, 19, of Surrey Avenue, Slough, have been standing trial at Reading Crown Court over the past month.

Kyron Lee, 21, was run down by a stolen Golf in Earls Lane on October 2, 2022.

Four men then got out of the car and hunted him down with machetes, stabbing him in the head, chest and abdomen.

Three of Mr Lee's killers have already been jailed.

Today (March 26), Judge Amjad Nawaz summed up the extensive evidence heard by jurors in recent weeks.

The prosecution charges that Seedahmed drove the vehicle used to run down the victim, while Almallah was part of the group that stabbed him to death.

Both deny having anything to do with the attack.

The stabbing took place early in the evening.

Although graphic footage of the incident was captured on CCTV, the killers made efforts to disguise their identities.

As a result, the prosecution have used some circumstantial evidence in a bid to identify the defendants.

They have suggested that Almallah's height matches that of one of the killers - whilst the driver's outfit bears a similarity to clothes Seedahmed had worn months prior.

Judge Nawaz said the defence has criticised the prosecution case for depending on "confirmation bias."

He told jurors: "The identification, say the defence, is all based on a theory, and all the enquiries subsequent to that have been undertaken to support that particular theory that the prosecution have."

Almallah's fingerprints were found on the car which ran down Mr Lee.

He went abroad for a year after the killing, travelling to Spain, Turkey and Egypt before surrendering himself to British police custody in July 2023.

Seedahmed went to the Netherlands, but was only at large for a brief period before being extradited back to the UK.

The prosecution have singled out what they believe to be a degree of pre-planning in the months before Mr Lee's killing - including the purchase of airplane tickets by the defendants, and an effort to secure weapons.

Sending jurors out, Judge Nawaz said he would only accept a unanimous guilty verdict against Almallah and Seedahmed.

He stated: "The only verdict which is acceptable is a verdict on which you are all agreed. You may have heard of majority verdicts. I would ask you to put that out of your minds."

The jury are currently deliberating.
