Charges have been dropped and a man has walked free as a trial into the murder of a man in Bradford continues.
Tony Grant, 39, of Queens Road, Bradford, was cleared of attempted murder after the judge ruled there was insufficient evidence.
Grant, along with co-accused Mohammed Nisar Khan and Nadeem Khan, was also cleared by the jury on the direction of the judge of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice by removing details of a Kia Sedona from the Motor Insurance Database on October 3 last year.
It was the single count alleged against Nadeem Khan, 35, of Gledhow Wood Road, Roundhay, Leeds, so he walked out of the dock ahead of the start of the defence case involving the remaining three defendants.
Mohammed Nisar Khan, 41, of Holme Lane, Tong, known as Meggy, and Grant, known as Granty, are still on trial accused of murdering Amriz Iqbal, known as Major, in Sandford Road, Bradford Moor, on 3 October.
Salman Ismail, 31, of Hollin Road, Shipley, Bradford, denies conspiracy to pervert the course of justice by trying to destroy CCTV evidence by fire and robbery at the Whitehall Petrol Station in Birkenshaw.
