Jamie Bain was fatally stabbed at a house party after an argument
A man has admitted killing a teenage friend during a party his mother had told him not to have.
Christopher McCandlish, 21, invited friends to his family home in Glasgow, while his mother was on holiday.
But he got into a fight with 17-year-old Jamie Bain after repeatedly telling him to keep the noise down.
McCandlish was accused of murder but prosecutors accepted a guilty plea to the charge of culpable homicide. He will be sentenced next month.
The High Court in Glasgow heard that McCandlish's mother had warned him against having a party at the family home while she was on holiday in May this year.
But he allowed a group of friends into the home in Drakemire Drive, Castlemilk, when she was away.
'Loss of friend'
The court heard that at first the group were enjoying themselves, but McCandlish snapped after repeatedly telling Mr Bain to keep the noise down.
The pair began to punch each other, and the fight spilled into the kitchen where McCandlish stabbed Mr Bain.
The teenager received a number of wounds, including one though the heart, and paramedics were unable to keep the young father alive.
Judge Sean Murphy QC remanded McCandlish in custody.
McCandlish's defence lawyer Tony Graham said his client had expressed regret for what he had done.
"His actions have caused the loss of a friend," he said. "He knows the devastating impact this will have on his victim's family."
