MacDougall admits stabbing

A MAN from Lerwick has been kept in custody after admitting stabbing another man in a row over drugs.

Ross MacDougall appeared at Inverness Sheriff Court on Tuesday and pled guilty to a charge of striking his victim with a steak knife to his injury and danger of life in Inverness on 18 October.

The court heard how the 27 year old attacked his 26 year old victim after being sold paracetamol instead of cocaine.

It was later discovered that the drug dealer had sustained a collapsed lung and that one of the stab wounds had just missed a main artery coming from the heart to the lungs.

Sentence on MacDougall, who was described as a prisoner in Inverness, was deferred until 19 January 2016 for background reports.
