A killer who stabbed a man to death in a busy city street after a previous incident with his mother has been jailed for life.
A judge told James McInnes, 46, that the murder of Kenneth Andrews had caused "concern and upset" to people who witnessed the violent attack.
He ordered that McInnes serve 17 years in prison for the murder before he becomes eligible to apply for release on parole.
Lord Brailsford said: "It was an attack on another person in a public street in front of commercial premises, shops and a takeaway restaurant, in broad daylight when there were members of the public going about their lawful business."
The judge ordered that McInnes serve 17 years in prison for the murder before he becomes eligible to apply for release on parole.
Lord Brailsford said he had to take into account "the serious level of violence used in this crime" as well as McInnes's previous criminal record.
The judge told him at the High Court in Edinburgh on Thursday that he had "a very poor criminal record" which included violent crime, although more recently he had been convicted of drugs and dishonesty offences.
McInnes, from the Bridgeton in Glasgow, had denied the murder of Mr Andrews on October 30, 2011 on the city's Dalmarnock Road.
But he was convicted of murdering Mr Andrews, 41, by repeatedly striking him on the body with a knife.
Before the murder Mr Andrews had got into an argument with McInnes's mother.
Defence solicitor advocate James Mulgrew said: "There was an incident involving the deceased and his mother beforehand which was not trivial and obviously caused some upset."
Mr Mulgrew said that McInnes had acted as a carer for his elderly mother for a number of years.
When McInnes encountered his victim he stabbed him four times, with the fatal blow severing a major artery. The victim was taken to hospital but suffered massive blood loss and died.
