Jonathan Williams, aged 19, faced cross-examination at Wolverhampton Crown Court on Monday – he is on trial along with Kerry Francis, aged 42 and a 16-year-old who can't be named because of his age, for the murder of Mr Harrison who was found with gunshot and knife wounds at a Dunstall Hill drugs den on December 30 last year.

Williams said his 'head was oiled' when he was interviewed by the police and admitted that he might not have told them the whole truth.
