‘It’s left a huge void in our lives’

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Front Page -

THE fam­ily of a man killed in a Dundee street have hit out af­ter his at­tacker launched a bid to have his sen­tence quashed.

Ar­ran Fen­der, 31, was sen­tenced to 12 years in prison for the cul­pa­ble homi­cide of Gary McMil­lan, 44, in May 2017.

Fen­der stabbed Mr McMil­lan dur­ing the in­ci­dent at the junc­tion of Lawton Road and Lawton Ter­race.

The Tele re­vealed yes­ter­day he had launched an ap­peal against his prison sen­tence.

A spokes­woman for Mr McMil­lan’s fam­ily said to­day: “He took Gary’s life with such vi­o­lence, bru­tal­ity — a hor­rific heinous crime. A jury found him guilty and Judge Lady Carmichael im­posed a 12-year sen­tence.

“There­fore he shouldn’t have the right to ap­peal. What about Gary’s rights?

“No sen­tence would be long enough for the loss, grief, pain he’s in­flicted on ev­ery­one’s life who loved, knew and re­spected Gary.

“Life will never be the same with­out Gary’s pres­ence, it’s left a huge void in our lives.”
