‘EXTENSIVE’ amounts of Gemma Hayter’s blood was found on a bed in a Rugby flat lived in by two of the people on trial for her murder, a court has heard.

Investigating forensic scientists found Gemma’s blood not only on the bed in the flat in little Pennington Street on the night she died, but also on the carpet, radiators and on a roll of masking tape.

Gemma, 27, was later beaten, stabbed, suffocated, stripped naked and left on the old railway line in Hillmorton Road on August 9 last year.

Chantelle Booth, Daniel Newstead, Duncan Edwards, Joe Boyer and Jessica Lynas are all standing trial accused of Gemma’s murder, which they all deny.
