Iain Packer
gave evidence in his own defence during the trial.

He said he had paid Emma for a sex act in Glasgow in August 2004 and
that he had continued despite her asking him to stop.

Under cross-examination, he accepted he was guilty of indecently
assaulting Emma. He said he apologised and was “ashamed”.

However, he continued to deny being responsible for Emma’s
murder.

In his directions to the jury, judge
Lord Beckett told them they should deliver a guilty verdict to the indecent
assault charge.
