Accused's girlfriend alleges he admitted killing Hungarian takeaway driver

The trial of a man accused of killing a takeaway driver in the north Wales village of Meliden has heard from his girlfriend. Mold Crown Court heard video evidence from the 17-year-old telling police that James Siree admitted killing "a massive Hungarian guy" in a phone call.

She alleged that he was screaming and growling at one stage, and said that he was planning to run away. During four phone calls in the minutes following the alleged attack on Hungarian national Gabor Sarkozi, it is claimed that Siree said that he was not joking, that he had murdered someone.

The prosecution say that Mr Sarkozi died one night last October after being attacked twice by two men – once near the village of Meliden and later close to the Happy Garden chip shop where he was employed.

Defendants 22-year-old James Siree and his uncle Gary Bland, both from Rhyl, deny murdering Mr Sarkozi, a Hungarian national living in the town. The trial will continue tomorrow.
