Two men have appeared in court charged with the murder of a disabled man in Glasgow.
Jason McInally, 50, and Patryck Janiski, 31, allegedly stabbed and battered 33-year-old Tomasz Lipiec to death at a flat in Townhead on September 4 and 5.
Prosecutors state the pair compressed Mr Lipiec’s neck by putting an arm round him and repeatedly struck him on the head and body.
It is also claimed they stamped on and repeatedly stabbed his body with a knife.
The pair face a second charge of stealing holdalls, a cap, a tin containing money, mobile phones, clothing, a bank card, a Polish identification card, a provisional driving licence, gloves, a TV and entertainment sound system from the flat on Dobbies Loan Place.
McInally, of the city’s Hillhead, and Janiski of Govanhill, made no plea at a private hearing at Glasgow Sheriff Court.
They were remanded in custody pending further examination by Sheriff Mary Shields.
The pair will appear at court again within the next eight days.
