Default Press Association:Jury discharged in Wragg trial

Jury discharged in Wragg trial
Press Association

Thursday March 17, 2005

The jury in the trial of a man accused of murdering his terminally ill 10-year-old son was discharged today after failing to reach a verdict. Andrew Wragg, 37, denies murdering his son Jacob, who suffered from the degenerative disease hunter syndrome, at the family home in Worthing, West Sussex, on July 24 last year.

The jury was discharged at Lewes crown court on its second day of deliberations. Mrs Justice Rafferty thanked the jury of nine women and three men for their consideration and attention during the 11-day trial.

The defendant was released on conditional bail and remains charged with murder. The Crown Prosecution Service was given seven days to decide on its course of action.

Mrs Justice Rafferty said: "I'm going to give the crown a little while to stand back and draw breath. They have options at the moment."

A CPS spokesman said it was considering its position. "We are not in a position to comment further at present due to the sensitivity of the case. As soon as we know anything we will make a statement."
"Human nature will only find itself when it finally realizes that to be human it has to cease to be beastly or brutal." (Mohandas Gandhi, In Search of the Supreme)
"I learned that familiar paths traced in the dusk of summer evenings may lead as well to prisons as to innocent, untroubled sleep." (Albert Camus, The Stranger)
