The jury in the trial of a man accused of murder over a £10 drugs debt are hearing closing speeches.
Thomas Moore, 42, went with his friend Ricky Marshall to retrieve £10 Mr Marshall was owed by Matthew Constantinou for cannabis.
Norwich Crown Court heard the pair turned up at Constantinou's address, in Antingham Drive, North Walsham, where he lived with his mum, to get the cash back.
But they were chased away by Constantinou before ending up on Bacton Road, where Mr Moore was fatally stabbed in the neck.
Constantinou, 42, of Antingham Drive, North Walsham, has denied murder on October 2, last year, and claims he was acting in self-defence.
The jury are hearing closing speeches by the prosecution and defence on Monday before the judge sums up the case following the nine-day trial.
