A MAN was jailed for eight years for killing his drinking partner.
Bertie Hall, 49, attacked Terry Miller, 30, at a property in Whitburn on December 27 last year.
Hall, who had previously been convicted of culpable homicide, was sentenced at the High Court in Glasgow on Tuesday.
Detective Inspector Stuart Wilson said: “This was a violent and shocking attack, which left Terry Miller with a significant injury from which he could not recover. Bertie Hall has been shown to be a violent and reckless character whose actions have robbed Mr Miller’s family of their loved one.”
