The jury in the trial of a man accused of beating a retired roofer in the street outside his home was today resuming its deliberations at Bradford Crown Court.

The jury, down to 11 members, spent yesterday afternoon considering its verdicts at Bradford Crown Court before being sent home overnight at 4pm.

Ladislav Balaz, 22, of Samuel Street, Keighley, denies wounding Keith Alder with intent to cause him grievous bodily harm and being in possession of a baseball bat on October 22, 2011.

Mr Alder, 66, had to have both legs amputated after he was severely beaten and kicked outside his home in Sowden Street, Great Horton, Bradford.

He was knocked out, hit with baseball bats and kicked him on the ground.
