Two men accused of murdering an Aberdeen oil worker have told jurors they were not involved in his death.
Callum Davidson,24, Steven Dickie, also 24, and Tamsin Glass, 20, all from Kirriemuir, deny murdering Steven Donaldson, 27, in their home town between June 6 and June 7 last year.
Davidson was giving evidence in the trial at the High Court in Edinburgh.
His advocate Johnathan Crowe asked him whether he murdered Mr Donaldson. He replied: “No. I did not.”
Meanwhile, Dickie had also been giving evidence in the trial – for the third day. He told the court he didn’t attack Mr Donaldson and that Davidson was responsible.
Dickie, a tyre fitter, also described Davidson as “the muscle… he’s the one they go to.”

Dickie replied: “No.”
He also told prosecution lawyer Ashley Edwards he had no involvement in Steven Donaldson’s death.
