When I told him it was the tenant, he said he would teach him a lesson," the teenager said. The family lives in Chandu Nagar slum in the Khajuri Khas area of north-east Delhi. The 45-year-old tenant was well-known to the family and had been living in one of the rooms in the house for the past five years.

Russell Rose sat expressionless as he walked into the courtroom Thursday, accused of killing his 11-month-old daughter.

Mr Elston regularly travelled to the estate from his home near Tralee to visit his ex-partner and their son, the court heard.

Outlining the prosecution case, Tim O'Leary, senior counsel for the State, told the jury they will hear evidence that Aaron Sweeney - the accused man's brother who lived with the accused and their mother in the estate - woke up around 4.30am on the morning in question by "someone who appeared to be Mr Elston, shouting outside his home".

Mr O'Leary said Aaron Sweeney will allege he heard this male say "I'm going to kill him", and that this man "may have been holding an axe".

"I think you will hear evidence that Blake Sweeney left the house but came back straight away and took a knife from the kitchen.

"This knife is approximately eight inches long."

Mr O'Leary said evidence will be heard that the accused took the knife from his house and walked the relatively short distance to a neighbouring house.

He said the court may hear evidence from two prosecution witnesses - Sean McSherry and Nicola Farrell - that they had been drinking with the deceased on the morning he died.

"You may hear them say they saw the accused Blake Sweeney walk into the house, and that Mr Elston was on a sofa, not armed, and sitting down at the time, and that Blake Sweeney walked in and stabbed Mr Elston."

Mr O'Leary said the post mortem showed Mr Elston sustained "a number of cuts" to his body which were "consistent with a eight-inch butcher's knife".

The jury will hear evidence "these wounds caused excessive bleeding, internally and externally".
