A Supreme Court jury in South Australia has started its deliberations in the murder trial of two men over Glenys Heyward’s death.
Matthew Heyward, 22, and farm worker Jeremy Minter, 28, have been on trial at Mount Gambier for more than six weeks over their alleged involvement in a plan to murder Ms Heyward, three years ago.
Both deny knowing of the plan which was allegedly masterminded by Matthew Heyward’s father Neil, who killed himself while in custody last year.
The trial heard a multi-million-dollar dispute over property was the motive behind Glenys Heyward’s death.
The jury will spend the night in a hotel after deliberating all day.
They were warned to keep themselves isolated from others overnight and they will return to the Supreme Court to continue deliberating on Wednesday.
