Inverness man found guilty of repeatedly raping woman

A man has been found guilty of repeatedly raping a 36-year-old woman in Inverness.

Vincent Spears, 51, attacked the woman at an address in the city in October 2013.

The High Court in Edinburgh heard that he choked his victim and threatened to kill her during the assaults. Spears, of Inverness, had denied the charges.

Judge Lady Wolffe deferred sentence on Spears for reports. He will be sentenced on 27 March.

A jury found Spears guilty following a week-long trial.
