Brother's appeal for tough sentence for Glasgow murder

Paul McManus has been found guilty of the murder of Isabelle Sanders at her home in Glasgow.

Ms Sanders had been stabbed 37 times during the break-in the city's Crookston area in April.

The jury at the High Court in Glasgow took just over an hour to find the 20-year-old guilty of Ms Sanders' murder and of the attempted murder of her 86-year-old partner, Norman Busby, who survived being stabbed by McManus.

Speaking outside court, James Dougall, brother of Isabelle Sanders, appealed to the judiciary's Lord Armstrong to "ensure public confidence remains in our justice system by imposing a severe sentence on a violent re-offender who has devastated our family."

Mr Dougall thanks the Scottish Ambulance Service, Police Scotland, the Crown Office and the procurator fiscal for their work in helping Ms Sanders and in bringing the case to court.
