The judge in the Graham Dwyer murder trial has urged the jury to set aside any feelings of dislike or lack of sympathy they may feel towards the accused.
Mr Justice Tony Hunt is charging the jury before they begin to deliberate on a verdict.
Mr Dwyer, an architect from Kerrymount Close, Foxrock denies killing childcare worker Elaine O'Hara at Killakee in Dublin in August 2012.
Mr Justice Tony Hunt is giving the jury final legal directions and a summary of the evidence before sending them out, probably some time tomorrow.
Graham Dwyer is on trial for allegedly stabbing Elaine O'Hara to death for his own sexual gratification.
The judge has warned the jury to be vigilant and ignore any feelings they may have towards the accused particularly in relation to the "unpalatable features" of this case.
He said proof of unusual thoughts or fantasies do not constitute a crime unless the ingredients of murder have been established.
