    The trial of Stephen Nicholson, 25, who is accused of murdering Southampton schoolgirl Lucy McHugh continues today (Wednesday, July 3).
  • He denies murder.
  • Yesterday, Lucy's mother's partner, Richard Elmes, gave evidence to the court. The jury also heard evidence from former school leaders from two of Lucy's former schools - who both reported Lucy's alleged relationship with Nicholson to social services, who took no further action.
  • This morning the court will hear from a friend of Nicholson, who will be cross-examined by Nicholson's defence barrister, James Newton-Price QC.
