Louise Tiffney: Judges set mother murder trial hearing date
Judges have set dates for a hearing to take place on whether a man who was acquitted of murdering his mother can stand trial for a second time.
Sean Flynn, 35, was cleared by a jury in 2005 after being accused of killing his mother Louise Tiffney who went missing in Edinburgh in 2002.
Prosecutors have applied double jeopardy legislation in a bid to have a fresh proceedings brought to court.
Mr Flynn's legal team opposes the move to place him on trial again.
At a procedural hearing on Wednesday, judges Lord Menzies, Lord Brodie and Lord Drummond Young arranged for a four-day hearing to take place later this year.
The hearing will start on 26 November.
