Jurors in the trial of a Castletown man who is standing trial for murder will resume their considerations over the verdict today.

The 12-strong panel retired yesterday afternoon to consider the case - those deliberations will restart this morning.

46-year-old Ian Anderson is accused of murdering 60-year-old Neil Roberts in 2013.

His body was found at Anderson's home on Queen Street on December 1st.

When considering the murder charge the jury has also been asked to look at potential partial defences of provocation and diminished responsibility which could lead to a charge of manslaughter.  

Ian Anderson denies murder - the trial continues.
