Furlong family sickened by defendant's testimony in murder trial

The Furlong family has said they are sickened by the testimony given at the trial of Richard Hinds for the murder of their daughter Nicola.

Nineteen-year-old Richard Hinds from Memphis, Tennessee, has admitted strangling the 21-year-old, but denies killing her intentionally.

In his testimony he said Nicola twice asked him to put his hands on her neck and on the second occasion she passed out and never regained consciousness

Mr Hinds will be cross examined by lawyers for the prosecution tomorrow.
