A nine-year-old boy has told a murder trial he heard his mother shouting "stop it" and ran to seek help.

The boy, who the BBC has chosen not to name, said Kim Campbell, 41, asked him to call the police during an incident in Elgin, Moray, in November.

His father James Munro, 56, denies murdering Ms Campbell.

Via a CCTV link, the nine-year-old told the second day of the trial at the High Court in Edinburgh: "She did say something like 'that was a knife'."

He said his mother was in the bathroom of the house with his father at the time.

The boy told advocate depute Tim Niven-Smith how his mother's pleas made him search for his laptop.

He wanted to use Facebook to send a message to a friend's mother to get her to the house, but could not find the computer.

The boy said he went to a neighbour's house.

The trial continues.
