Ten years’ jail for murder bid
A MAN has been jailed for 10 years after trying to murder a workmate in a savage knife attack after a drinking session.
Thomas Telford, 21, left his victim Callum Thomas scarred for life and without one of his kidneys after surgeons carried out emergency life-saving treatment, the High Court in Edinburgh heard.
Telford, of Castlemilk, Glasgow, had been found guilty at an earlier court of attempting to murder Mr Thomas by repeatedly striking him on the body with a knife to his severe injury, permanent disfigurement and to the danger of his life.
He was also convicted of assaulting the victim’s neighbour Lillian Hood, now dead, by grabbing her by the throat and threatening her with violence.
