Shirley McKie update

New Suspect revealed in Marion Ross murder case.

Sensational claims have been made in the Sun Newspaper that it has obtained secret police documents showing that in February 1997, before David Asbury was arrested for the murder of Marion Ross, the murder team had a suspect called Patrick Docherty.

Docherty was not arrested and went on a few years later to murder another elderly lady a few miles from Marion Rossís home. (Breaking News 25 February)

Top judge joins move for a public enquiry

Today one of Scotlandís top legal authorities Lord McCluskey entered the controversy surrounding the Shirley McKie affair.

"Justice in such a case cannot be done in secrecy: the transparency of the justice process is fundamental."
"If I were a judge having to give directions to a jury about how they might approach disputed fingerprint evidence, I would have great difficulty in knowing what to say.Ē
"This whole sorry episode has so entered the public consciousness that it cannot be simply swept under the carpet." (Breaking News 25 February)
