Murder Trial: Court hears details of victim's injuries

A jury has been told that 36-year-old Tristram Wallace died of a cardiac arrest after sustaining more than 40 injuries following an attack in Stratford last year.

A post mortem showed Mr Wallace suffered a broken nose, an internal tear to his abdomen and cuts and bruises to his face, body, arms and legs following the attack.

However a forensic pathologist told the court none of the injuries were themselves fatal and his death was probably triggered by Mr Wallace inhaling his own vomit, resulting in a lack of oxygen in the blood, combined with the stress of the attack.

Neil Potter, 36, of Clopton Road, Toney Jelf, aged 39, of Childs Close, Stratford, Peter Mallon, aged 41, of Rumer Close, Long Marston and Donna Windsor, 37, of Betjemen Road, Stratford, all deny murder.
