Man murdered after dog row

Some crazy people around

A man has admitted murdering his neighbour near their homes in Glasgow after a row relating to a dog.

Martin Carroll, 28, stabbed 36-year-old Stephen Gannon in the neck near their tenement block in the city's Springburn area on 14 August.

The High Court in Glasgow heard that the victim died outside his home. Carroll later told his grandmother: "I've done something stupid."

He faces a mandatory life term when he is sentenced at a later date.

The court heard that Mr Gannon lived downstairs from Carroll at the flats in St Monance Street.

Carroll once had a disagreement with another neighbour about her dog misbehaving.

On 14 August, Mr Gannon was chatting to the neighbour who had the dog, inside the tenement when Carroll walked by.
