Second man to stand trial over murder of dad shot dead

Gary More, 32, was shot several times in the head and body outside his home in Airdrie in 2018.

A second man is to stand trial charged with shooting a dad to death in North Lanarkshire.

Thomas Guthrie, 24, is accused of being involved in the murder of Gary More at the 32-year-old’s house in Airdrie in September 2018.

On Wednesday, Guthrie appeared in the dock at the High Court in Glasgow for a hearing with Neil Anderson, 44, who has already faced the same allegation.

Prosecutors claim the pair were acting with unknown others at the time.

It is alleged Mr More was induced from his home before a firearm was “repeatedly discharged”.

The indictment states he was shot in the head and body.

Guthrie’s QC Thomas Ross pleaded not guilty on his behalf.

Anderson is separately accused of being concerned in the supply of drugs as well as behaving in a threatening and abusive manner towards Mr More.

David Anderson, 35, who does not face the murder allegation, is also accused of those two charges.

They previously pleaded not guilty at a hearing late last year.

The trial is due to begin in April.
