Apparently the group is infinite as it contains a free subgroup generated by s234 * s1234. I don't have a proof, but here is a quick check that first 100 powers of this element are irreducible:

G.<s1, s2, s3, s4, s12, s23, s34, s123, s234, s1234> = FreeGroup()
H = G / [s1^2, s2^2, s3^2, s4^2, s12^2, s23^2, s34^2, s123^2, s234^2, s1234^2, s1*s2*s1*s2*s1*s2, s2*s3*s2*s3*s2*s3, s3*s4*s3*s4*s3*s4, s1*s3*s1*s3, s2*s4*s2*s4, s1*s4*s1*s4,s1*s12*s2*s12, s4*s34*s3*s34, s3*s123*s23*s12*s3*s123*s23*s12, s123*s12*s4*s34*s4*s12*s2, s23*s1234*s12*s3*s4*s3*s12,s23*s1234*s34*s1*s2*s1*s34]
rw = H.rewriting_system()

for k in range(100):
print( rw.reduce( G([9,10])^k ) )
