Jury retires to consider Esk murder accused's fate

A JURY was late yesterday determining the fate of Jamie Rex Teichmann who has been accused of murdering a man on a property near Esk.

The trial drew to a close on Tuesday, its seventh day, and the jury retired to consider their verdict just before lunchtime.

They had not reached a verdict late yesterday.

Mr Teichmann is accused of shooting Carl Upson in the head with a shotgun in December 2010 at a property on Mount Mulgowie Rd, south of Esk.

During the trial the jury was shown photographs police took after discovering Mr Upson's body on a while tiled floor in a train carriage that had been converted into a home.

The trial also heard Mr Teichmann claimed he and Mr Upson were wrestling and that Mr Upson was shot during the struggle.

But the prosecution case claimed it was impossible for Mr Upson to have pulled the trigger because of the gun's length and the position of his injuries.
