Jury retires in trial of suspected Night Stalker Delroy Grant
The jury in the trial of a man accused of being the Night Stalker rapist has retired to consider its verdicts.
Delroy Grant, of Brockley Mews, Brockley, is alleged to have carried out a string of sex attacks on elderly men and women over the course of 17 years at homes in Beckenham, Bromley, Orpington, Forest Hill and Croydon.
The 53-year-old denies 29 offences between 1992 and 2009 including 16 burglaries, two attempted burglaries, three rapes, one attempted rape, six indecent assaults and one sexual assault.
Grant told Woolwich Crown Court his ex-wife Janet Watson framed him for the attacks by using a male associate to plant his DNA at the scenes of the crimes.
