It is further claimed Mr Curran was stamped or kicked on the body.

The indictment states Mr Curran was left so severely injured that he died.

The case called on Monday at the High Court in Glasgow, where lawyers for Walker pleaded not guilty on his behalf.

Lord Richardson set a trial due to begin in July next year.

The case could last up to five days.
