    I walk and drive these parts from time to time. I probably won't ever view the place in the same way again.

    Sorry I'm just catching up. For me it's where he said it would ruin your life to murder someone, total narcissism and sociopathic. All he is thinking about is how it would ruin his life, not a thought for the victim or the family.

    Cross examination continues of teenager accused of raping & murdering Alesha MacPhail, aged 6. Yesterday the prosecuter put it to him that he was a confident liar. He denied that. He says Alesha’s dad’s girlfriend killed her & framed him.

    Looks like it. Very confident boy here. Egotistical comes to mind.

    I don't know I'm only copying the BBC correspondent's tweet over.

    The eighth day of the Alesha MacPhail abduction, rape and murder trial is underway at the High Court in Glasgow. The defence is due to call more witnesses, as the 16-year-old boy accused denies the charges.

    Agree. Hard to fathom that with the evidence presented he has the brass neck to do this at all.

    The trial of a 16 year old boy accused of abducting, raping & murdering 6 year old Alesha MacPhail on the Isle of #Bute is continuing at the High Court in #Glasgow today. The teenager denies all the charges. We are expecting the defence to present their final witnesses today.

    Or just a normal 16 year old who hasn't yet learned appropriate empathy? I know I hadn't figured all that out until into my mid 20s (but I'm an Aspie so whether that contributed to my immaturity I don't know).

    Quite possible he doesn't. My 16 year old definitely understands empathy but everyone is different.

    KEY EVENT

    The defence is due to call more witnesses for the eighth day of the trial.

    The accused teenager, who cannot be named due to his age, took the stand to give evidence yesterday.

    I think Avril Lax may be the MacPhail's neighbour.

    Assume the first witness is indeed a neighbour then. Is this all the defence have, so what if RM & TM were having an arguement, everyone argues.

    Hmmm...beaten up sounds a bit more extreme. Find it so hard to believe as it’s not as if they lived alone, it was his parents home.

    Can anybody remember off the top of their heads if the accused was 15 whenever Alesha was killed, or 16? I’m just trying to work out roughly the ballpark area for him turning 18 and being named and identified if he’s found guilty this week
