A "simmering feud" between two traveller families led to a father-of-three being murdered when he was dragged under a van, a court has heard.
Patrick Maloney, 43, died from "multiple crushing injuries" after being hit by a van at the Toddbury Farm site, near Leighton Buzzard, on 2 August 2016.
Christopher McCarthy, 22, from the neighbouring Greenacres site, denies murder.
His brother Thomas McCarthy, 24, has pleaded not guilty to causing Mr Maloney actual bodily harm on the same night.
Prosecutor Miranda Moore QC told Luton Crown Court his death was "the culmination of a simmering feud between two travelling families" after the Maloneys had moved to the site a few weeks earlier.
She told the jury that Mr Maloney was seen as a "gentle giant".
