Brothers jailed after man killed in Alloa
Two brothers from Alloa have been jailed for killing a 29-year-old man in his own home.
44-year-old Barry Harrison was ordered to serve at least 17 years in prison after he admitted murdering Kyle Watt back in March.
Mark Harrison, aged 36, was jailed for 10 years after being found guilty of culpable homicide.
Mr Watt was stabbed in the chest and leg and was also hit repeatedly over the head with a baseball bat.
The incident happened at a flat in Alloa’s Pine Grove on Saturday 3rd March.
Detective Chief Inspector Dave Pinkney from the Major Investigation Team said, “Our deepest sympathies remain with the family and friends of Kyle Watt and while nothing can undo the actions of Barry and Mark Harrison, his loved ones can hopefully take comfort in the fact that both men have been brought to justice.
“Tackling violent crime and removing offenders, particularly those who utilise weapons, remains a priority for Police Scotland and whenever such incidents arise we will investigate thoroughly to bring those responsible before the courts.”
