A teenager was murdered by three men after he stole a £10 piece of cannabis, the High Court in Glasgow has heard.
Latherton Drive where Mr McLaughlin was murdered
Kevin McLaughlin, 18, was chased, punched, kicked, stamped on and stabbed twice in the chest in Maryhill, Glasgow, on 4 November 2005.
Peter Cunningham, 23, Gary Sutherland, 16, and John Struthers, 21, all from Glasgow, were convicted of murder.
Lord Carloway described the attack as unprovoked and premeditated. Sentence was deferred for background reports.
The court heard Mr McLaughlin went with a friend to buy some cannabis from a former girlfriend of Cunningham.
While they were there, he stole a small piece with an estimated value of £10.
Cunningham received a call complaining about the theft.
About 20 minutes later Cunnigham, Sutherland and Struthers murdered Mr McLaughlin.
Lord Carloway told the jury it had been a difficult and distressing case and excused them from jury service for 10 years.
