'Hired killer spent the proceeds'
The jury in the trial of two men accused of murdering a teenager in a bungled contract killing have been shown CCTV footage of one defendant allegedly spending the proceeds.
Aamir Siddiqi, 17, was stabbed to death at his home in Cardiff in April 2010.
Swansea Crown Court was told Jason Richards, 38, and Ben Hope, 39, killed him after going to the wrong address.
Both deny the murder and the attempted murder of the student's parents, who tried to defend their son.
The court has heard how Mr Richards and Mr Hope had been paid by a businessman, angry because a property deal had collapsed, to kill his chosen victim in Shirley Road.
But the pair were said to have gone by mistake to the Siddiqi family home around the corner in Ninian Road instead.
Patrick Harrington QC, prosecuting, described events as CCTV footage of the two men in Cardiff was shown to the jury.
He said Mr Richards and Mr Hope were paid following the killing but before it emerged that they had killed the wrong man.
