THE jury in the Bowan Taylor Wade murder trial will return to Toowoomba Supreme Court this morning for further deliberations on a verdict.

The jury deliberated throughout all of yesterday but when they hadn't reached a verdict by 4.30pm Justice Peter Applegarth allowed them to go home for the night.

Wade, 21, has pleaded not guilty to murdering his ex-girlfriend Klarissa "Sal" Callow whose body was found inside a locked rented storage shed in Stanthorpe on August 10, 2009.

Ms Callow had gone to the storage shed to retrieve some of her possessions.

A witness told the trial that Wade had called him after the event saying he had "lost it" when Ms Callow said something to him inside the shed and that he had knocked her off some boxes and she had "gone flying".

Her body was found on the floor of the shed near the door, blood coming from her nose.

No definitive cause of death was released but pathology examinations pointed to asphyxia.

The defence contends Wade had not intended to kill Ms Callow only to assault her in the heat of the moment.
