Murder accused denies killing partner Pamela Jackson

A man has denied killing his former partner, describing the allegations as 'hurtful'.

Pamela Jackson's body was found on moorland in West Yorkshire in March.

Giving evidence for the first time, Adrian Muir, 51, from Halifax, said she had a split personality and had once threatened him with a knife.

On the day she disappeared, Muir said Pamela Jackson, 55, told him to leave her home in Chester-le-Street because he refused to help her inject Botox.

The prosecution claims he killed her and buried her body, a charge he denies.

The pair met on a dating website, and Muir claims he spent £40,000 of his savings on Ms Jackson.

Muir told the court: "It hurts me very much that these things were said. I loved her and I still do."

The trial continues.
