A man has appeared in court charged with murdering former loyalist gun-runner Lindsay Robb in Glasgow.
Lindsay Robb spent time in jail for gun-running
Brian Tollet, 29, from Glasgow, is accused of stabbing the 38-year-old to death at shops in the city's east end on Hogmanay.
He made no plea when he appeared in private at Glasgow Sheriff Court and was remanded in custody.
Mr Robb was released from prison in Northern Ireland in 1999 under the terms of the Good Friday Agreement.
He was the first member of the Loyalist Volunteer Force to be freed under the inmate early release scheme which was part of the Stormont peace accord in the late 90s.
Mr Robb was a leading member of the Progressive Unionist Party, which was involved in peace negotiations.
After his release he moved to Scotland, where he set up home in Airdrie and got married.
Mr Robb, originally from Lurgan, Co Armagh, was convicted in 1995 for his central part in a loyalist gun-running operation.
