VICTIM ... John 'Jonty' Hall.

MURDER accused Nicholas Rought has told jurors he was suffering “delusional thoughts” when he confessed to killing John ‘Jonty’ Hall.

The 45-year-old told detectives during questioning he “released all his demons” and felt better after beating the dad-of-two to death at a house in Mill Terrace, Shiney Row, Sunderland, last September.

But Rought, who denies murder, now says he is not to blame for the killing.
