Murder Appeal Aginst Conviction Refused
HMA v Frank Cairney 2019
Mr Wright has had his appeal against conviction refused at the High Court of Justiciary. Mr Wright was found guilty of the murder of Mr McClelland, that occurred in Paisley in July 2017. The family of Mr McClelland are now calling for a fatal accident inquiry in to his death. The murder seemed to be a random attack.
The appellant was released from prison on a tag, however this was broken and allowed him to carry out the attack. Mr McClelland’s father has stated: “A murderer has been convicted but there has still not been a full, independent inquiry into why this happened. The authorities need to be held to account too. Only a full inquiry can help us find the answers we need about why this was allowed to happen and how we can stop it ever happening again.”
