A 27-year-old man has appeared in court charged with the murder of a man in Paisley, Renfrewshire.

Norman Carlton is alleged to have repeatedly stabbed convicted murderer Stewart Gillespie at the 53-year-old's home in Glencairn Road on 3 October.

He is also charged with stabbing and attempting to murder Robert Lawther, 32, during the same incident.

Mr Carlton, from Paisley, made no plea or declaration at the town's sheriff court and was remanded in custody.

Mr Gillespie was found with fatal injuries after police officers were called to reports of a disturbance.

He had previously served a life sentence for the murder of Mark Rennie in Paisley in 1996.
