Men Charged With Attempted Murder

Two men have appeared in court charged with attempted murder over an incident in West Lothian last week.

The pair were arrested after two men were injured at an address in West Main Street in Armadale at about 8.40pm on Tuesday. They have since been discharged from hospital.

Stuart Robertson, 27, and John Cowan, 18, from Bathgate, both faced a charge of assault to severe injury, permanent disfigurement, danger of life and attempted murder during a private hearing at Livingston Sheriff Court.

The pair were also charged with assault to severe injury, the Crown Office confirmed.

They made no plea or declaration and were remanded in custody.

The case was committed for further examination and they are expected to appear in court again next week.
