Teenager admits stabbing brother in Kinellar

A teenager has admitted stabbing his older brother in the family's Aberdeenshire home.

Billy Wilson, now 16, was 15 when he injured Mark Wilson, 18, in Kinnelar in October last year.

The first offender admitted a charge of assault to severe injury, permanent disfigurement and to the danger of life, reduced from attempted murder.

Lord Bannatyne deferred sentence at the High Court in Edinburgh for a background report.
