Two men charged with the murder of a teenager in the Western Isles in November 2011 have had their trial adjourned.

Johnathan MacKinnon, 22, of Elgin, and Stefan Millar, 21, of Inverness, are accused of killing 16-year-old Liam Aitchison in Steinish, on Lewis.

The men were due to stand trial this week at the High Court in Glasgow.
