Ameen Thabet, 50, from Smethwick, is accused of murdering his wife Najeeba Al-Ariqy, 47, by choking her to death.

She was found unresponsive by paramedics at her house on Sutton Street, Aston, on March 23 last year.

Thabet was seen visiting a property in Smethwick.

DC Spencer Jenkins talked jurors through the footage where he made a comment that Thabet appeared to be "indecisive" in his movements while at the property. He could be seen leaving the property with a blue bag.

Prosecutors allege the defendant staged a fake burglary after his wife's death.

Thabet, of West Park Road in Smethwick, denies murder.

The trial continues.
