Can Crown prosecutor Mark Ellison QC supply the evidence to send the two down
Will Mr Justice Treacey, the judge preside over justice?
Will 12 jurors, selected form a pool of 49 potential jurors brought to court, be able to make a decision not influenced by past stories?
In Court 16, Norris and Gary “loveable rogues” Dobson stood. They spoke only to give their names.
They deny murder.
Five little white boys going in for law,
One got in Chancery and then there were four.
Four little white boys going out to sea;
A red herring swallowed one and then there were three.
Three little white boys walking in the Zoo;
A big bear hugged one and then there were two.
Two little white boys sitting in the sun;
On got frizzled up and then there was one.
One little white boy left all alone;
He went and hanged himself and then there were none.
