    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

    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

    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

    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

    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.

    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
