Stolen Art Watch, Leonardo Da Vinci Madonna Trial, Reverse Sting in The Tail !!!

Da Vinci trial in final stages

THE prosecution completed its evidence in the Madonna of the Yarnwinder trial at the High Court in Edinburgh yesterday.

Jurors were sent home until Monday, while the judge, Lady Dorrian, heard legal submissions on behalf of the five accused.

The £20 million Leonardo da Vinci masterpiece was stolen from the Duke of Buccleuch's Drumlanrig Castle in Dumfriesshire in 2003.

Marshall Ronald, 53, of Skelmersdale, Lancashire, Robert Graham, 57, and John Doyle, 61, both of Ormskirk, Lancashire, and Glasgow-based solicitors Calum Jones, 45, and David Boyce, 63, deny conspiring to extort £4.25m from the duke and the insurer Hiscox UK for its safe return.
