‘Can wives be in prison to­gether?’

Macclesfield Express - - BEFORE THE BENCH -

THE day be­fore Liam died a search was car­ried out on the de­vice for “Can wives be in prison to­gether?”, the court heard.

An­other asked: “Can les­bians who are mar­ried hot [sic} to jail to­gether?”

An in­ter­net search re­turned a web page en­ti­tled “Can you die from a bro­ken bone?”, ju­rors heard. The mur­der trial also heard about mes­sages sent be­tween the two de­vices.

One from Ms Fee’s phone to Ms Trelfa’s stated: “An­other few days and he’ll crack with­out sleep and we’ll be able to make progress”, the hear­ing was told.

An­other stated: “Bit lip, scratched eye, a bruise while he walked in door yes­ter­day when I was on phone to you, lol. We knew it would bruise, it had to, lol. It’s Liam now, graze on fore­head and nose looks mighty fine, ha ha.”

Ques­tioned by de­fence QC Brian McCon­nachie, for Ms Trelfa, the wit­ness agreed that the pair had handed over the phones to the po­lice at the first op­por­tu­nity when they were ques­tioned as wit­nesses.

The Crown has now for­mally closed its case.

Mark Ste­wart QC, de­fend­ing Fee, told the court some le­gal mat­ters now re­quire to be dis­cussed.
