Stephen Farrow admits the manslaughter of the Reverend John Suddards earlier this year on the grounds of diminished responsibility but denies murder.

He's admitted a separate charge of burglary of a house in Thornbury when the prosecution claims he left a note pinned to the kitchen table reading: "Be thankful you did not come back or we 'd have killed you Christian scum. I hate God."

The trial has been adjourned until Monday.
