From Checkpoint, 6:18 pm on 23 September 2019

A jury has been told specific details about the way grass was folded on a secluded Whanganui track as it considers the circumstances around missing man Brett Hall's disappearance.

David Lyttle is accused of killing Mr Hall in 2011 in a dispute over money, but no body or murder weapon has ever been found.

The prosecution are trying to prove that Mr Lyttle lied about seeing Mr Hall's quad bike in a different location two days after the alleged murder.
