Prosecutors opened the murder case in September at the Old Bailey as Jodie’s family watched from the public gallery.

The court heard how Chesney died from an 18cm deep knife wound which almost passed right through her body.

On Wendesday, the jury retired to deliberate their verdict after a 33 day trial around the girl’s death, of which shocked the nation.

Judge Wendy Joseph QC sent the jury of five women and seven men out to deliberate on their verdicts at 3.30pm.

Judge Joseph said the "central dispute" to the trial was whether Svenson Ong-a-Kwie and the 17-year-old boy stabbed Ms Chesney.

A couple of hours after the killing in March, a black Corsa registered to Petrovic was found abandoned about two miles away, he said.

Following his arrest, Petrovic admitted driving to Harold Hill with a friend and two others who had gone into the park to collect money and drugs.

He denied knowing the pair were armed beforehand, the court heard.
