A friend of slain Kevin Holmes said the justice system had failed his devastated family after his killer admitted to a reduced charge of culpable homicide.
George McDonald said he had killed Kevin – known as Keek – by kicking, punching and stamping on his head in a lane near Main Street on March 22, 2016.
Family friend Jim Scott Snr said:“There is no way this is justice. He was only walking through the lane to take a short-cut to the Main Street when he was assaulted.”
Law and District athletes Hayley Berry and Vivian Duruh were being tipped for the top by their coach.
Don McLeod said the Wishaw youngsters were on course to represent Scotland at the Commonwealth Games after taking the shotput scene by storm.
Vivian, of St Aidan’s and Hayley, of Coltness High, competed in the Scottish Indoor Schools Championships, finishing second and third respectively.
