A woman who stabbed her housemate to death after they played sex games is due to be sentenced.
Eliska Novotna admitted stabbing Arunas Ramanauskas up to six times at a remote farm house near Peebles on October 7 last year.
She was found guilty of culpable homicide after standing trial for murder. Novotna claimed she was acting in self defence as she feared being the victim of a sex attack.
On Tuesday, the 23-year-old is due to be sentenced at the High Court in Edinburgh.
During the trial, the court heard Novotna admitted to the killing just hours after the incident.
PC Vanessa Hamilton had told how she came across Novotna walking on a road into Peebles near the town's police station in the early hours of October 8.
Novotna later told her: "We played some sexual games, then I killed him."
Novotna told the court how she tied a dressing gown cord round her housemate's eyes and neck before arming herself with a knife, walking topless into his room then stabbing him to death.
