Dog row murderer given life sentence.

Byline: PAUL WARD reporters@dailyrecord.co.uk

A MAN who stabbed his neighbour in the neck after an argument about a dog was jailed for life yesterday.

Martin Carroll, 28, pled guilty to carrying out a knife attack on Stephen Gannon, 36, in Springburn, Glasgow, last August.

Stephen collapsed outside the tenement block they both lived in and died shortly afterwards.

The attack happened after the pair rowed about another neighbour's dog. The court heard Carroll had previous convictions for violence.

At the High Court in Edinburgh, Lord Turnbull told Carroll he will serve at least 14 years in jail.

Detective Chief Inspector Allan Burton said: "This was a vicious attack by a violent individual on a man who was a friend and neighbour to many where he lived."
