The Loan Path Murder
Last year's documentary series The
Trial made legal and television history with its detailed portrayal of the Scottish High Court. Forthe first time, viewers could watch trials for serious crimesfrom beginningto end - not live, as in the USA, but at least in full detail. The Trial is now being repeated in modified form, featuring new interviews with key figures in each case and reporting on the subsequent fate of the defendants. ,
The series opens tonight with the case of Andrew Deacons , accused of the murder of civil servant
Matthew Flemming. Deacons's girlfriend, a key prosecution witness, talks about why she decided to give evidence that led to his conviction.
Flemming was battered to death as he walked home alone. There were no witnesses to the attack, no apparent motive and no fingerprints. But the police found two watches at the scene of the crime. One was identified as the victim's and the other, claimed the prosecution, was dropped by Deacons at the time of the murder.
