Three men charged with murdering a 60-year-old man in Ayrshire have been freed on bail after prosecutors lost an appeal to remand them in custody.

Dale Russell, 34, Ross Russell, 33, and Harry Hood, 44, are accused of killing Arthur Green in Prestwick in November.

They made no plea or declaration and were granted bail at Ayr Sheriff Court on Monday. An appeal by prosecutors saw them remanded pending another hearing.

The Crown appeal was rejected at the High Court in Edinburgh.

Mr Hood, of Ayr, Dale Russell, of Girvan and Ross Russell, of Maidens, near Turnberry, all Ayrshire, were released after the hearing.

Mr Green, who was well-known in the South Ayrshire town, was found by a family member at his home in Pleasantfield Road at 08:10 on 20 November.
