A JURY in the trial of former police officers Roger Rogerson and Glen McNamara over the murder of student Jamie Gao has been discharged. 

Infamous 73-year-old Rogerson and his former colleague McNamara are accused of killing Mr Gao after a $3 million drug deal turned sour in Sydney last year.

Police allege the men were captured on video walking into a storage shed with the 20-year-old and minutes later, emerging without him but carrying a bag.

Mr Gao's body was found wrapped in a blue tarpolin, which had been weighted down with rope and chains, off Cronulla's Shelley Beach in May last year.

The trial began on Monday.
