Court date for Ronnie Coulter over Surjit Singh Chhokar murder
A man has been formally indicted for the 1998 murder of Surjit Singh Chhokar in Overtown, North Lanarkshire.
Ronnie Coulter, 46, from Wishaw, will appear at the High Court in Glasgow for a hearing on 24 February as the Crown case against him proceeds.
Last year, judges gave prosecutors permission to retry Mr Coulter over the fatal stabbing of Mr Chhokar, 32.
They ruled that two other men, Andrew Coulter, 33, and David Montgomery, 37, could not face trial for a second time.
All three men were previously cleared of murdering Mr Chhokar in 1998.
