Andrew Fisher QC and Gurdeep Garcha defend man charged with Murder and Robbery
Andrew Fisher QC and Gurdeep Garcha are representing a Romanian man on trial accused of the murder of an Iranian businessman in August 2015.
The prosecution case is that the accused visited the home of the deceased in order to rob him.
During a violent confrontation he is alleged to have stabbed him repeatedly, before ransacking his home and stealing the takings from his business.
He is then said to have fled to Romania the same day, from where he was extradited in late 2017.
The trial at Birmingham Crown Court is scheduled to last 3 weeks.
