A murder suspect is accused of stabbing a man to death.

Anthony Angelosanto is charged with killing Roderick Georgeson, 41, at a house in Newtongrange, Midlothian last August 14.

The 49-year-old allegedly grabbed Mr Georgeson and repeatedly struck him on the body with a knife.

He is separately accused of causing “fear and alarm” towards a woman between May 17 and August 10, 2021.

Mr Georgeson is also mentioned in the charge described as the woman’s “partner”.

It is said Angelosanto repeatedly pestered her by text, email as well as on social media and ignored requests by the police to stop.

He also allegedly turned up at the woman’s home and made threats towards Mr Georgeson.

It is further claimed Angelosanto waited for her and Mr Georgeson to leave the property, shouted and swore as well as engaged in a fight with him.

Angelosanto is separately accused of breaching an order not to approach the pair and also attempting to defeat the ends of justice.

No plea was entered during a hearing at the High Court in Glasgow on Monday.

Lady Stacey continued the case until August.
