    A man is to face trial in March for the 1986 strangulation of 16 year old Elaine Doyle in Greenock, Glasgow, Scotland in 1986.

    Police say John Docherty - 21 at the time - attacked Elaine on her way home from a disco, seized her by the hair, stripped her of her clothes, forced her to the ground and then strangled her with a ligature. He is also accused of stealing a handbag and its contents on the same date.

    Docherty, now 49, also faces another charge; that between 1990-1995 he assaulted Linda Hargie, seizing her by the hair, grabbed her by the arms and neck, pushed, struggled and punched her.

    Docherty's pleading not guilty. Trial set to begin March 25th in Edinburgh High Court.

    This is the first indictment served up since the Crown Office set up a Cold Case Unit in 2011.
