Three men have gone on trial charged with murdering a 26-year-old man in Aberdeen.

Kiel Hauley, 33, Jonas Marcius, 23, and Adrian Morley, 33, deny assaulting and murdering Craig Grant, of Inverurie, outside the Galleria shopping centre in August last year.

They are alleged to have seized him by the neck and forced him to the ground.

They are accused of holding Mr Grant on the ground, restricting his breathing, asphyxiating him and murdering him.

The men went on trial at the High Court in Aberdeen, and the case is expected to last up to three weeks.

The trial continues on Wednesday.
