A MURDER accused has admitted responsibility for causing the horrific knife injuries that killed a 45-year-old Edinburgh man.
David Nairne made his confession just nine days after the charred body of Alan Ross was found in a burning flat in Pilton.
But Nairne, 26, said he fell asleep on the sofa of the flat in Pilton Drive North and wakened to find Mr Ross performing a sex act on him.
The blade attack was a “direct result” of that provocative act, the High Court in Livingston was told.
The trial continues
