Jonathan Kean aged 23 was jailed for life yesterday in Glasgow, for the murder of disabled Martin Broadley. Kean shouted "I'm Jocky, I've been on the telly, I've just murdered some guy" to a group of youths as he ran from the scene.
Lord Turnbull ordered that he must serve at least 12 years before he can apply for parole. The judge said "You have pled guilty to a despicable act of violence perpetrated on an innocent and vulnerable man who was a complete stranger to you and for no apparent reason." Ashley Edwards, prosecuting, told the court that Kean had a number of convictions for violence and possession of a knife.
