A man has admitted being responsible for the death of a Malaysian restaurant worker at a block of flats in Glasgow.

Wing Ho, 49, is accused of murdering 28-year-old Chee Gang Goh, in the common close at flats in Craighall Road, Port Dundas, on 11 April.

At the High Court in Glasgow, his lawyer entered a guilty plea to the reduced charge of culpable homicide.

This offer was rejected by prosecutors, meaning Mr Ho will continue to face a murder charge.

He is also accused of attempting to defeat the ends of justice - a charge which he denies.

Preliminary hearing

It is claimed that Mr Ho disposed of clothing, a knife or knives, a mobile phone and SIM cards following the alleged murder.

He is then alleged to have cleaned a Nissan Micra car and instructed his daughter, Johin Ho, to give false information to police.

All this is said to have taken place between 11 and 22 April at Craighall Road and at a property in Old Kilpatrick, West Dunbartonshire.

Judge Lord Bracadale adjourned until a further preliminary hearing later this month. It is expected a trial will last up to 10 days.
