Cage fighter Damon Wright is accused of murdering Kevin Wyeth

The 32-year-old is accused of murdering Saints groundsman Kevin Wyeth, who was found dead in an alleyway in Woolston last August.

The prosecution claim that Wright brutally beat a "defenceless" Kevin, who they say was urinating when he was first hit.

Wright, from Poole, denies murder, claiming he acted in self defence.
