Gavin Moon murder trial
A neighbour heard what prosecutors say was a man being murdered in the flat below him, a court heard.
The witness was playing a computer game when he heard a disturbance downstairs which prosecutors say was Gavin Moon being killed by Brian Goldsmith and Luc Barker.
The upstairs neighbour said he heard a male voice shouting “you thieving scumbag”, punching sounds, a voice saying “nobody’s f****** coming” and a groaning noise.
The witness said he didn’t’ think the voice he could hear was that of Barker, who lived there, and said he had not heard it before.
Goldsmith and Barker deny murdering Mr Moon, 31, with knives in Washington in January and are standing trial at Newcastle Crown Court.
Mr Moon’s body was found the day after the neighbour heard the loud disturbance.
The neighbour told jurors he had been playing a computer game when he realised something was going on in the flat downstairs.
