Two men have gone on trial charged with the racially aggravated murder of a 57-year-old man in a Glasgow street.

Asif Rehman, 20, and Adel Ishaq, 19, are accused of attacking William McKeeney and causing him to fall to the ground.

They are then alleged to have repeatedly punched and kicked him, and stamped and jumped on his head and body.

Both men denied the charges against them at the High Court at Kilmarnock.

Mr McKeeney was so severely injured after the incident yards from his home in Melville Street, in the Pollokshields area of Glasgow, on 15 January that he later died at the city’s Victoria Infirmary.

Mr Rehman and Mr Ishaq, both said to be prisoners at Polmont Young Offenders Institution, deny the racially aggravated murder of Mr McKeeney and showing previous malice and ill-will towards him.
