“Free the Killie 2” – Brendan Dixon and Patrick Docherty

Patrick Docherty, 49, and Brendan Dixon, 45, were sentenced to at least 25 years for killing Margaret Irvine in Galston, Ayrshire, in 2003. Docherty’s legal team claimed the Crown did not disclose evidence, he was interviewed without a lawyer and the judge did not properly direct the jury.

“The defence lawyers of two men who were found guilty of murdering an elderly woman were not told that a potentially “significant” witness – who gave evidence for the prosecution – was seen outside the victim’s house on the day her body was found.

The Sunday Herald has learned that, despite being identified by a “credible” witness who didn’t take the witness stand, the man, who has served time in prison and was admitted to a hospital’s psychiatric ward two days later, was not interrogated about the claims at the trial of Patrick Docherty and Brendan Dixon for the murder of 91-year-old Margaret Irvine four years ago.”
