A man has appeared in court charged with murdering Glasgow gangland figure Kevin "Gerbil" Carroll.

William Paterson, 34, is accused of repeatedly shooting and killing 29-year-old Mr Carroll outside Asda in Robroyston on 13 January 2010.

He is also charged with possessing guns, concealing them, and attempting to evade justice by torching a car.

Mr Paterson made no plea or declaration during an appearance at Glasgow Sheriff Court and was remanded in custody.

He is due to appear at court again next week for full committal.

The charges allege Mr Paterson was in possession of a Ruger .357 Magnum gun and 9mm self loading pistol.

It is also alleged that he attempted to defeat the ends of justice by wilfully setting fire to a car and concealing two handguns in shrubbery at an area at the back of Coatbridge Library in North Lanarkshire.

He faces a fourth charge of stealing a car on 22 September 2009 in Rutherglen, South Lanarkshire.
