Bulletin: Ben Butler: UK: Ongoing trial: Ben Butler makes 'unfair trial' claim after doctor's evidence is halted: Butler, accused of killing daughter Ellie, six, calls expert witness but judge admonishes defence over ‘improper’ questioning..."Butler remained agitated throughout her evidence, frequently looking at the jury and muttering.
