He told the police he had an affair. Would only have done that if he thought she was returning - defence #badenclay

Byrne: That does not in my submission betray to you someone who is hiding anything, someone who very recently killed their wife. @abcnews
BBM Why the need to tell TM after Allisons death they needed to "lie low"

Gerard is sitting up straight in the dock, not moving as defence nears the end of closing argument #badenclay

Byrne: says G #badenclay confessing of affair to police shows he expected Allison to walk through door, not that he murdered her. @abcnews

Your duty is to ignore the media - defence #badenclay

Some jurors looking at Michael Byrne, others looking down or away as he talks about media coverage #badenclay

Byrne says the jury must make their decision on the evidence. #badenclay
Byrne says the sensational media coverage has taken it to the "lowest common denominator". They must ignore it. #badenclay
Byrne says the media coverage must be completely out of their contemplation. #badenclay
Byrne says they have to ignore the publicity. Says the media haven't seen, heard and assessed each one of the witnesses. #badenclay
Byrne says each member of the jury is in the best possible position to assess the evidence. #badenclay
Byrne says the jury has seen the Kholo Creek bridge, they have walked through the house. #badenclay

Prosecutor Todd Fuller flicking through paperwork ahead of his turn to give closing argument #badenclay

Byrne to jury: You are the only ones who have gone to look at Kholo Creek, the bridge, the house. @abcnews
Because he knew Allison was dead and the truth about the affair's would become common knowledge.

Byrne says on all the evidence, they could not find Gerard guilty of murdering his wife. #badenclay
Byrne says there is no cause of death, no realistic means of carrying it out. #badenclay
Byrne says their verdict on the evidence must be not guilty. And he's done. #badenclay
David Murray ‏@TheMurrayD 39s
There are no realistic means of him doing what the prosecution alleges - defence #badenclay
I don't agree. If he thought she was returning at any moment, why on earth blab on about the affair to the police? Not necessary. IMO he was trying to establish himself as forthright and honest - giving too many unnecessary personal details way too early in the piece.
Sing out if you need a hand

Your verdict on the evidence should be not guilty - defence barrister Michael Byrne QC finishes his closing argument #badenclay
I know she made her own (spare) bed, but you 'd have to think TM wishes she'd had the courage of her convictions to leave it at labelling GBC a lowlife and chucking stuff at him. She was on the money there.
Sounds like Byrne is winding up and Todd is getting ready.

That's the defence done. Michael Byrne QC has taken his seat. #badenclay
