Two men and a woman have been convicted of attempting to murder a man at a city flat.
It comes after Lee Hutchison, 29, Mathew Donaldson, 23, and Ashley Duncan, 22, went on trial at the High Court in Aberdeen last week accused of the murder bid, which they denied.
The trial before Lady Scott lasted just over a week.
Returning its verdict yesterday, the jury convicted all three over the attack on the man during an incident on May 22 last year at an address on the city’s Auldearn Place.
The trio were found guilty of attempting to murder the man while acting together and repeatedly punching and kicking him on the head and body and brandishing a knife at him.
They went on to grab hold of him and stamp on his head and body, causing him serious injury and permanent impairment.
Donaldson and Hutchison were also found guilty of causing severe injury and permanent impairment to another man on Gardner Drive on February 20 last year.
The pair punched him on the head and put his jacket over his head, before going on to struggle with him and repeatedly punch his head while wearing a knuckleduster.
Hutchison was convicted of a further assault involving a knuckleduster also on Gardner Drive on February 20 involving a third man, repeatedly punching him and causing him severe injury.
He was further convicted of a fourth charge where he was found guilty of assaulting another man to severe injury on Caiesdykes Crescent on April 30 last year, striking him on the face, causing him to fall to the ground and punching and kicking him.
Advocate Depute Bill McVicar told the High Court that all three had previous convictions.
Lady Scott told the trio that what they had been convicted of was “serious” and she would defer sentence for a background report, but remanded all three in custody until then.
Donaldson, of King Street, Duncan, of Short Loanings, Rosemount, and Hutchison, of Berrywell Walk, all Aberdeen, will be sentenced next month.
