    Jon-Paul Chatwood, 26, is expected to be cross-examined this morning, before another defendant takes to the witness stand to give evidence.
  • Yesterday, Chatwood told the jury that he would never have arranged for someone to be killed over a £60 drug debt, when he was called as the first defence witness at Preston Crown Court.
  • When questioned by Mark Ford QC about his involvement in Ms McBlain’s death, said he would ‘definitely not’ arrange a murder over £60.
