Life in jail for brutal kick killer.

Byline: GORDON MCILWRAITH

AN EVIL thug who kicked a woman to death was jailed for life yesterday.

Mum-of-two Linda Anderson suffered 78 injuries after Duncan Edwards' frenzied attack.

The tragic 44-year-old died from brain damage the day after the attack in Edwards' flat in Tollcross, Edinburgh, two years ago.

Edwards, 32, was found guilty of the murder a second time after the Appeal Court said the judge at his first trial misdirected the jury.

Mrs Anderson's boyfriend, Craig Dundas, 39, was also charged with the killing but was found guilty of assault and admonished at the first trial.

He said he saw Edwards stamp on Mrs Anderson after a drunken row at a Hogmanay party.

Dundas, who said he ran to get help, told the High Court in Edinburgh: "It was a bloodbath."

Edwards had lodged a special defence blaming Dundas for the murder. Judge Lady Cosgrove said it was a "savage assault".
