A “grey and jittery” murder accused confessed he had broken a baseball bat by striking Steven Donaldson with it after he and a friend stepped into an argument between their female co-accused and her Arbroath ex-boyfriend at a Kirriemuir’s children playpark, a court has heard.
Steven Dickie then took a bent kitchen knife from a coat pocket shortly before co-accused Callum Davidson went back to the Peter Pan park to look for pieces of the broken bat.
Dickie and Davidson arrived back at Davidson’s house around 1am on June 7, where Davidson’s partner described the men as “worried” and “jumpy”.
Callum Davidson, Steven Dickie and Tasmin Glass all deny murdering Mr Davidson on June 7 last year.
