A man has appeared in court charged with murdering another man in Glasgow and threatening a possible witness.

Paul Boyle, 38, is accused of fatally stabbing 52-year-old Kenneth McNeill at a flat in the city's Dumbarton Road, Yoker, on 15 May this year.

He is also accused of attempting to defeat the ends of justice.

During an appearance at the High Court in Glasgow Mr Boyle denied the charges. Judge Lord Bracadale set a trial due to begin in December.

The charge of attempting to defeat the ends of justice includes a claim that Mr Boyle told a possible witness to "keep his mouth" and that he threatened to cut his throat.

The charge also alleges he put blood stained clothes in a washing machine and that he also disposed of a knife.
