Brutal abuse and torture - and just a few miles from here across the Moray Firth!

At the High Court in Edinburgh today, Martin Ferris, 28, and Selina Kay, 25, were each jailed for four-and-a-half years for the abuse and torture to which they subjected Charles Kelman, 32, over a period of several months whilst all three shared a house at Alness (a town on the Cromarty Firth, just across the Moray Firth from here). It seems that the perpetrators believed that their victim has 'grassed them up', but it also seems that they became 'aroused' by the abuse. It is quite sobering to think that such things are going on only a few miles from here.
