Alex Prentice QC, advocate depute, said Logan set his brother on fire as he slept next to his partner…

Logan had pleaded guilty to charges of murder and attempted murder last month. He said he had poured the petrol in retaliation for being punched earlier by his brother, but had not intended to kill him.

"It was not my intent to kill him but I did do it," he told police.

He was given a life sentence with a minimum of 20 years, reduced from 24 because of his early plea, at the High Court in Edinburgh.

Judge Lady Scott said Cameron had died a "horrible death" and that his brother had "acted with wicked recklessness".

During the trial, the court heard the two brothers had a "hostile" relationship, and Logan told police they had not spoken since the death of their grandmother in 2013.

A computer seized from his bedroom showed that he had searched the internet for burn victims since October last year.
