Police have now released a statement, stating their belief that the outcome of the violent altercation on August 5, 2018 could have been much different had Devlin now decided to use a knife. 

Detective Chief Inspector Grant Macleod of Police Scotland’s Major Investigation Team added: “This was a tragic case where a man has lost his life, and another will now face a number of years in prison, following a violent fight outside a pub.

“Had Daniel Devlin not decided to use a knife that night then the outcome could have been very different for all involved.

“The choices he made that night highlights that the impact of those using knives is devastating and ruins the lives of victims, perpetrators, their families and the communities that they live in.

“I hope today’s sentencing will bring comfort to Dominic’s family in what has been a painful and distressing time for them.
