    12:26pm: Gerard Baden-Clay has now been placed in the charge of the jury.

    "The verdict is your judgement, whether the accused is guilty or not guilty," Justice John Byrne told the jury.

    He has reminded the jury that they are the judge of the facts.

    "You cannot take into account information from any other source other than what is presented at this trial," he said.

    "You are not detectives, you are judges of the facts.''

    I just read the Dickie's statement. That family is all class and I hope the media does continue to give them the respect and privacy they deserve.

    I'm intrigued as to why GBC's mother has not been called to give evidence.

    I don't think we have anyone there. I have no doubt TM is a major witness for the prosecution.

    “The verdict is your judgement whether the accused is guilty or not guilty,” Justice John Byrne told the jurors.

    “My task is to ensure the trial is conducted according to law.

    “If a question of law arises I might ask you to return to the jury room while I decide it.

    “Your function of deciding whether the accused is guilty or innocent involves considering the facts of the case based on the evidence put before you in this court room.

    “Pay careful attention to the evidence.”

    Justice Byrne instructed the jury to not seek information outside the courtroom or discuss the case with anyone but fellow jurors.

    “It is of critical importance to put such material out of your minds,’’ he said.

    “Information in the public arena is not always accurate. Sometimes it is just plan wrong.”

    1:21pm: The parents of Gerard Baden-Clay, Elaine and Nigel Baden-Clay, have faced the media outside the Supreme Court with their daughter Olivia and her husband Ian.

    The two couples emerged from the court hand-in-hand.

    Mr Baden-Clay's solicitor Peter Shields read a brief statement to the media:

    "Gerard has pleaded not guilty and his trial has begun," he said.

    "At the commencement of the trial Justice Byrne directed the jury to the danger of paying attention to anything other than the evidence which is placed before them in court.

    "Accordingly, the defence and my client's family will not be making any statement to the media or answering any questions asked by the media until after the verdict.

    "I also ask the media to respect my client's family as they attend court in support of Gerard. Thank you."
