The man charged with the murders of reclusive Forest Town pensioners Patricia and William Wycherley demonstrated to the jury how to fire a pistol as he gave evidence in his own defence at Nottingham Crown Court today (12th June).

Christopher Edwards (57) told the court earlier that he was unaware that his wife Susan Edwards (56) had opened a Halifax Building Society joint account in her and her mother’s name on May 5th 1998 - the day after the May bank holiday weekend in which they died.

But the court later heard of Edward’s long association with handguns - having owned three revolvers and been a member at a London gun club until 1995, when handguns were banned following the Dunblane massacre.
