Nightmare ends for victim as bomber convicted
A MAN has been found guilty of trying to murder five people – including his ex-girlfriend and her new partner – in a terrifying petrol-bomb attack.
John MacDonald, 43, was convicted yesterday of starting an inferno at an Elgin flat, injuring all of those inside. He had denied attempted murder but a jury of nine men and five women took four-and-a-half hours to find him guilty.

The court had heard MacDonald was unhappy about the relationship between his former partner, Lisa Sharp, and her new boyfriend, Mr Lindsay.
