A MAN who had his mrder conviction quashed on appeal has been found guilty a second time on retrial.

Muazim Shah (35) was found guilty of the killing of Barrhead women Lynne Farquar (47) in September 2011.

However three appeal court judges ruled that the jury had been misdirected and a new trial was called.

During the retrial, the court heard that the victim had been left with a fractured larynx, three broken ribs, a fractured skull and multiple bruising to her head and back.

The court also heard that Shah had left a bloody footprint on her stomach and near the victim’s ear.

The prints the police found matched those of an Adidas Lin trainer, which CCTV footage showed Shah to be wearing on the day Ms Farquar was killed.

Shah denied owning trainers such these but, police found that Shah’s girlfriend had bought him that type of footwear a few months before the incident.

Detectives also discovered that Ms Farquar’s DNA was on the steering wheel and handbrake of Shah’s Toyote Avensis.

Shah was remanded in custody and Judge Lord Kinclaven has deferred sentencing until August 13.
