A RENFREW man has gone on trial for allegedly killing another man at a post office.

Edward Brown, 51, and 63-year-old co-accused Alan Brown, of Craigton, Glasgow, are both said to have attacked John McGuire on March 24 last year.

The incident is alleged to have taken place at Cardonald Post Office, in Paisley Road West, Glasgow.

Prosecutors claim the pair were acting together when they held 56-year-old Mr McGuire on the ground and stamped on his body.

It is alleged they also pressed his neck and knelt on his back, restricting his breathing.

Mr Maguire, from Glasgow, was rushed to accident and emergency at the city's Queen Elizabeth University Hospital at 3.06pm on the day in question.

He was pronounced dead at 3.20pm.

Mr Maguire's body was taken for post-mortem examination and his brain was examined but no significant abnormalities were found.

At the High Court in Glasgow today, both men denied a charge of culpable homicide.

The trial, before judge Lord Clark, continues.
