The jury in the Barry Selby murder trial has returned guilty verdicts on all four defendants this afternoon.

Lee Calvert, 23, of Stirling Crescent, Holme Wood; Joseph Lowther, 22, of Copgrove Road, Holme Wood; Robert Woodhead, 28, of Fred's Place, Tyersal; and Andrew Feather, 23, of Heysham Drive, Holme Wood; have all been found guilty of the murder of 50-year-old Mr Selby.

Calvert, Lowther and Woodhead were also found guilty of possessing a firearm with intent to endanger life.

When the first firearms verdict was announced, Calvert attacked two security officers and had to be wrestled to the ground as he protested his innocence. The jury had to be sent away for several minutes while order was restored and Calvert was not brought back into court for the remaining verdicts.

Mr Selby died in hospital three days after he suffered acid burns and was shot in the leg at his home in Rayleigh Street, East Bowling, in the early hours of October 14 last year.

The four men will be sentenced tomorrow morning.
