A Blackbird Leys man received more than 80 injuries in a vicious attack last year.
Christopher Lemonius was found with multiple injuries in Jourdain Road in Blackbird Leys Park on June 1 shortly before 11pm and later died in hospital.
A trial which started on April 3 into Mr Lemonius’ murder continued at Oxford Crown Court this week.
The court heard that the 27-year-old was found with more than 80 wounds and a finger completely severed.
Police later found the missing digit in the back garden where the savage attack took place.
A Home Office pathologist told jurors that Mr Lemonius received 30 injuries to his head and neck, including one injury that penetrated his skull.
The first witness in the trial, Dr Alexander Kolar, said he thought a sharp-edged object had been used in the attack, such as a machete or another with a serrated edge.
His attackers are said to have driven a car at him before beating him with golf clubs, pieces of wood and hacking at him with a machete causing internal bleeding in his head and torso.
Prosecution QC Stuart Trimmer said there had been a confrontation between two groups in the park.
A larger group chased Mr Lemonius and two friends before an Audi A3 was driven at the victim.
Mr Lemonius fled down a nearby alleyway and into a house, where five men attacked him in the back garden.
Witnesses said they heard shouts of “let’s finish him off” and references to the stabbing of Yasmine Lamzini.
Yousef Koudoua, 28, of Balfour Road, Oxford, and Connor Woodward, 24, of Haldane Road, Oxford, who deny the charge, gave differing statements to police after being charged with murder, according to Mr Trimmer.
Both Yasine Lamzini, 20, of Jourdain Road, Oxford, and Rashaun Stoute, 24, of Church Cowley Road, Oxford, declined to comment and also deny the charge.
Two others charged with the murder, Otman Lamzini, 24,of Jourdain Road, Oxford, and Carlos Spencer, 26, of Wynbush Road, Oxford, deny the charge.
An unnamed 17-year-old from Oxford and Saffon Fakir, 26 of Territorial Way, Oxford, deny conspiracy to pervert the course of justice after allegedly hiding evidence.
Allal Lamzini, 69, and Yamina Lamzini, 57, both of Jourdain Road, Oxford, who were in the house at the time of the attack deny perverting the course of justice.
The trial is expected to last for up to eight weeks.
