Teenager tells court of dog poo ordeal.
TWO schoolgirls had their heads rubbed in dog dirt by a man who forced them to exercise in deep snow, a court heard yesterday.
A 17-year-old girl, who cannot be named, said Norman McConnachie, 42, made her and another girl lift weights as punishment.
She said: "Every time we would stop or go slow he would drag us by the scruff of our neck, put our heads in dog poos and make us do sit-ups."
The teenager was giving evidence in the trial of McConnachie and Rachel Boyd, 39, who face two charges of mistreating children between 2006 and 2012.
McConnachie is also accused of sexual assault.
Boyd and McConnachie, of Newtonhill, Aberdeenshire, deny all offences. The trial at Aberdeen Sheriff Court continues.
