Life in jail for killers who stabbed man outside mum’s pub

Owen Hassan was stabbed in the heart by two men in Glasgow.

Two killers who brutally attacked a man outside his mum’s pub have been jailed for life.

Craig Corrall, 39, and David Callaghan, 30, pounced on Owen Hassan in November 2018.

The 30 year-old dad died after being stabbed in the heart outside the Old Stag Inn bar – run by his mum Ann Marie Lynch in Pollokshaws, Glasgow.

She found him covered in blood and chased the killers as the fled the scene.

Jurors previously heard during a trial at the High Court in Glasgow how Corrall was “prepared to do 20 years” after discovering Mr Hassan had been seeing his ex-lover.

He was instead locked up for at least 20 years and six months while Callaghan was sentenced to 20 years.

Judge Lord Woolman told the pair the attack was “pre-mediated and vicious”.

The judge said: “In a victim impact statement, his mother said she cannot describe the physical pain she feels daily, the sickness in her stomach and the ache in her heart.”
