A man accused of murdering Glasgow gangland figure Kevin "Gerbil" Carroll has lodged a special defence blaming someone else.

William Paterson, 35, denies repeatedly shooting and killing 29-year-old Mr Carroll outside Asda, in the city's Robroyston area, on 13 January 2010.

He is also accused of fleeing to Spain in a bid to defeat the ends of justice.

Mr Paterson appeared at the High Court in Livingston. The preliminary hearing was told a trial will start next month.
