A jury has retired for the fourth day in order to consider a verdict of the trail for the killings of Salford gangland figure Paul Massey.
Mark Fellows and Stephen Boyle are both accused of killing Paul Massey outside his home in Salford in 2015.
Both men, originally from Salford, are also accused of the murder of Liverpool man John Kinsella. Both however deny the charges, suggesting that it was mere coincidence they were allegedly in the vicinity of both shootings at the time.
Massey, 55, was gunned down back in July 2015 outside his Salford home, however with lack of evidence, no one was arrested for the murder.
Almost three years later, in May last year, a known associate of Massey – John Kinsella – was shot in Liverpool.
The similarities between the two murders led police to believe the crimes were committed by the same person/people.
Stephen Boyle, 35, and Mark Fellow, 38, are jointly accused of both murders and the attempted murder of Kinsella’s partner Wendy Owen.
