Two brothers have denied murdering a man by attacking him with nunchucks, a sword and a knife.

John Clark, 39, and James Clark, 36, are accused of attacking 38-year-old Jason Bryden at his home in Kilmarnock, East Ayrshire, on 4 July.

Mr Bryden died three days later at Crosshouse Hospital, Kilmarnock.

The High Court in Glasgow heard that both men are accused of demanding money from Mr Bryden, robbing him of a wallet and a safe, and attacking him.

They also deny attempting to defeat the ends of justice by washing and disposing of bloodstained clothing, a wallet and a variety of weapons.

Both men will go on trial next June.
