A man who killed his neighbour has been convicted of murder at Edinburgh High Court

Harvey Frost today pled guilty to stabbing 25-year-old Craig Stewart during an attack within a flat in Magdalene Drive on Sunday 10th February.

Mr Stewart suffered a serious injury to his chest and was taken to the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh where, despite the best efforts of hospital staff, he later passed away.

Detectives in Edinburgh launched a major investigation following this incident and Frost was quickly detained and subsequently charged.

The 47-year-old will be sentenced next month.

Detective Inspector Stuart Houston from the Police Scotland Major Investigation Team said: “Harvey Frost and Craig Stewart, who were unknown to each other previously, had been socialising together within a flat in Magdalene Drive when Frost launched a violent and unprovoked attack. Craig was a much loved brother, son and friend. His loss has had a significant impact on all who knew him and I hope the outcome today will go some way in allowing the family to take a step forward in what has been the most dreadful and tragic circumstances.”
