Jury out in Dover manslaughter trial


A Queensland jury has retired to consider its verdict for two men accused of killing a man outside a Sunshine Coast nightclub in 2013.

Wade Goldsworthy and Matthew Hill, both aged 30, have pleaded not guilty to the manslaughter of 45-year-old Wayne Dover, who died outside the Factory nightclub at Maroochydore after suffering a tear to a major artery in his neck.

A Brisbane Supreme Court jury retired just before noon on Thursday to consider its verdict, having heard allegations Mr Dover was punched repeatedly as he lay unconscious on the ground.
