On 10 October 1986 the jury found the appellants not guilty of charge 1 (the Crown had not sought a conviction on that charge), and guilty by a majority verdict of charge 2 under deletion of the words "strike her on the body", "forcibly", and "repeatedly" where it last occurs in the charge.There was no eyewitness to the murder, nor was there any forensic evidence.

Since the time of Malcolm and Queen Margaret it had made great progress, and was now in a flourishing condition, when King Alexander in 1231, founded the Dominican Monastery.And in addition to these buildings, we have the introduction and endowment of no less than forty altars in St John's Church.The Catholic hierarchy had unquestionably got a firm hold of the people of Perth, and it is noticeable that the Incorporated Trades embraced the Catholic faith and also erected altars there.When the animals entered the Ark in pairs, one may imagine that allied species made much private remark on each other, and were tempted to think that so many forms feeding on the same store of fodder were eminently superfluous, as tending to diminish the rations.
