Three to stand trial for Saltcoats murder




Three men will stand trial in October charged with the murder of Ardrossan man Sam Johnston (pictured).

Mr Johnston, who was married with a 19-month-old daughter, was killed on October 26 2013 at a flat in Parkend Gardens, Saltcoats.

It is alleged the victim was repeatedly punched on the head and body then stabbed in the chest with a knife or similar instrument.

The three accused – Stuart McCulloch (17) of Saltcoats, Allan Carey (18) from Ardrossan and Glasgow man Fergal Morgan (22) – all deny murder.

The trial is expected to last around 10 days.
