Kim Campbell murder trial hears of 'fiance's obscene messages'
A man accused of murdering his fiancee in Moray sent her obscene and racist messages as he suspected her of having a holiday romance, a trial has been told.
James Munro, 56, denies murdering 41-year-old Kim Campbell in Elgin in November.
Her friend Helen Taylor told the High Court in Edinburgh: "He was getting quite intense with his threats".
One messages seen by the jury said: "For that you will die."
The court heard Mr Munro found a photo of Ms Campbell and a man named Zead who worked in a water sports centre in Tunisia, and suspected they had been involved in a relationship.
Mr Munro denies murdering Ms Campbell in their home in High School View, Elgin, on 8 November 2012.
The charge alleges that, after dragging her into a locked room there, he restricted her breathing, kicked and punched her and repeatedly struck her on the head and body with a knife.
The trial continues.
