A BBC documentary will shed light on the court proceedings that led to the conviction of Caroline Glachan's murderers.

The newest series of Murder Trial will return later this year and focus on the death of the 14-year-old schoolgirl, whose body was discovered on the banks of the River Leven in Renton on 25 August 1996.

Available on TV and iPlayer, the documentary will follow the legal process after Robert O’Brien, Andrew Kelly and Donna Brand stood trial last year, accused of being involved.

At Glasgow's High Court, the trio were accused of violently attacking the schoolgirl before pushing her into the River Leven. A fourth suspect died before she could be arrested.

A further instalment of the documentary series will delve into the case of 60-year-old Ean Coutts – a retired army veteran whose remains were uncovered in a disused industrial unit in Glenrothes, Fife in 2020.

David Barne, 33, stood trial at the High Court in Edinburgh, accused of Ean’s murder.

Inside The Murder Trial, a 10-part podcast has also been commissioned, examining the case of Renee and Andrew MacRae who vanished in 1976.

At the 2022 trial at Inverness High Court, 80-year-old William MacDowell was accused of killing his former lover and her son, disposing of their bodies and concealing the murders for 45 years.
