Second teen charged with Steven Mitchell murder

Have your say

A SECOND teenager has appeared in court charged with murder following the discovery of a man’s body in Bathgate.

Andrew Moran, 18, from Livingston, appeared on petition at Livingston Sheriff Court. He made no plea or declaration and was remanded in custody pending further inquiries.

Paul Erskine, also 18, from Bathgate, appeared on the same charge last Friday. Both are due to appear in court again this week.

They were charged in connection with the death of Steven Mitchell, 31, who was found dead in a house at Marmion Road last week. His body was discovered 150 yards from where Harry Reekie, 65, was allegedly stabbed in his Lothian Sreet home the previous day.
