Jealousy over a love rival may have driven a homeless man to stab another man in the back with a Stanley knife, a court has been told.

Bernard McSorley, 53, denies murdering Paul McDonagh after Mr McDonagh was found dead in an open garage four days after the attack.

Following the attack on October 24, McSorley - who was known as Bernie or Scottish Bernie - spoke about stabbing Mr McDonagh, who was also homeless, “as though it were the normal thing in the circumstances”.
