A jury has gone home at the end of its first full day considering the charges against four people accused of murdering Featherston man Glen Jones in a vigilante attack.

The jury of 11 spent about an hour on Wednesday and from 10am until 5pm today deliberating.

Jurors are due to resume in the High Court at Wellington in the morning.

On trial are Tariana Hineteanaurangi Jones, 34, Kristofer Lee Jones, 24, Matthew John McKinney, 29, and Hayden Ranson, 28. They have pleaded not guilty of murdering Glen Jones, 40, at Featherston on January 12, last year.

However McKinney and Ranson have acknowledged through their lawyers that they are guilty of manslaughter and they have pleaded guilty of aggravated burglary of Mr Jones' flat.

Tariana Jones, Kristofer Jones, and Toni Maree Miller, 23, have pleaded not guilty of aggravated burglary.

The Crown says it was a vigilante attack made after Mr Jones was accused of rape.
