A jury, trying four men accused of killing two girls outside a party, is expected to retire today to consider its verdicts.
Mr Justice Goldring spent yesterday summing up in the trial into the deaths of Charlene Ellis and Letisha Shakespeare, who were gunned down in the early hours of January 2, 2003.
It is alleged they were shot by mistake outside the Uniseven salon in Aston, Birmingham, by one gang against members of another, Leicester Crown Court heard.
Charlene's half-brother Marcus Ellis, (24), Nathan Martin, (26), Michael Gregory, (23), and Rodrigo Simms (20), all face two counts of murder and three of attempted murder. Jermaine Carty, (24), is charged with possessing a firearm.
Ellis, of Devonshire Avenue, Birmingham; Gregory, of Ryland Street, Birmingham; Martin, of South Road, West Midlands; and Simms, of Whitehouse Drive, Birmingham, deny the charges. Carty, of Cheyne Walk, Birmingham, has also pleaded not guilty.
