Murder trial jury to continue deliberations tomorrow

The jury in the murder trial of a Dublin man accused of stabbing two friends to death is breaking from its deliberations overnight.

Martin Toland of Walkinstown Park denies murdering 28-year-old Alan Nolan and seriously injuring 30-year-old James Carroll at Cedar Brook Walk, Ballyfermot on September 8, 2007.

The 36-year-old claims he acted in self defence after a punch up broke out at Alan Nolan's apartment.

The jury will go back out at the Central Criminal Court tomorrow morning.
