THE jury in the murder trial of Roger Rogerson and Glen McNamara has been discharged, a day after opening addresses began.
Justice Geoffrey Bellew told the 15 men and women this was due to “a legal issue which has arisen.”
“I have to make an order discharging you,” he told them.
“It would be inappropriate for me to go into reasons.
“Sometimes these things happen. It’s important both the accused in this case receive a fair trial.”
Earlier the court heard Rogerson shot Jamie Gao “in cold blood” and turned the gun on Glen McNamara, threatening to kill him and his family, McNamara’s barrister claimed in his opening address to the jury.
