Man jailed for life for killing his brother by setting him on fire | UK news | The Guardian

A man who murdered his brother by setting fire to him has been sentenced to life in prison.

Brian Logan, 27, pleaded guilty at Glasgow high court last week to charges of murder and attempted murder for the attack on his brother and his brother’s girlfriend as they slept on New Year’s Day.

He must serve a minimum of 20 years, reduced from 24 because of his early plea.

Logan poured petrol on Cameron, 23, and the bed he was sharing with Rebecca Williams in their family home in Milngavie, East Dunbartonshire, in the early hours of 1 January this year.

Williams was rescued and treated in hospital; Logan’s parents were treated for smoke inhalation.

The court was told Logan had a hostile relationship with his brother and that searches of his computer revealed he had researched burn injuries.
