A jury has retired to consider its verdict in the trial of a dog breeder charged with shooting dead his partner and her daughter.
82-year-old John Lowe denies murdering Charlotte, who was 66, and 40-year-old Lucy Lee at his puppy farm at Tilford near Farnham.
Richard Slee sends this report from Guildford Crown Court.
The jury has retired in the trial of an elderly dog breeder charged with murdering his partner and her daughter.
John Lowe, 82, is accused of deliberately shooting 66-year-old Christine Lee and her daughter Lucy Lee, 40, with a legally-held shotgun he normally used for killing rats at his property near Farnham, Surrey in February.
His trial at Guildford Crown Court heard that Lowe told police after the shooting that he had "put down" the women after they had been "giving me s*** for weeks".
But giving evidence, farmer Lowe told the jury that Christine was shot accidentally in a struggle over the double-barrelled weapon when she tried to stop him going to put down some dogs, and that Lucy was accidentally shot twice a short time afterwards.
Lowe denies two counts of murder and one of possessing a firearm with intent to endanger life. The trial continues.
