A court was told a man accused of murder has no history of violence – unlike his co-accused.
Tomas Gulbinavicius, 33, and Janis Karajevs, 30, are alleged to have killed Aleksejus Zarskus by punching and kicking him and stamping on his head at their city home on King Street in January this year.
The men, on trial at the High Court in Aberdeen, deny the charge.
Mr Zarskus died three days later from his injuries.
Murray Macara, defence for Gulbinavicius, told the jury: “My client is 33 years of age and has no previous convictions for violence. Mr Karajevs has seven convictions for assault and has been to prison five times.”
The trial continues.
