Man Bludgeons Friend, Gets Life Term

James Smith, a former psychiatric patient has been jailed for life for bludgeoning his friend Stuart Robertson to death in October last year in a Glasgow's Pollok Park.

He was returned to the State Hospital at Carstairs and if released from there will serve the remaining part of his sentence behind bars.

Outside court, the victim's family is furious over the frenzied act and demanded to know why Smith was freed to kill their brother.

Stuart's brother Gordon Robertson, 41, said: "We want to find out how he could b
