The jury in the Singh siblings murder trial of Max Sica, 42, has retired to consider its verdict today in Australia.

Sica pleaded not guilty to three counts of murder.

He is accused of strangling his former girlfriend Neelma Singh, her brother Kunal and sister Sidhi in 2003 Brisbane’s north.

ABC online reports the jury’s deliberations were delayed because of a problem with the preparation of DVDs of evidence yesterday.

However Justice John Byrne sent the jury out at the completion of his summing up this morning.

This is the longest murder trial in Queensland’s history in which 100 witnesses were called.

If found guilty, Sica could face three life sentences each with a minimum 15 years before he is eligible for parole - making 45 years.
