Man accused of Trainspotting actor’s murder acquitted of 13 other charges

A man accused of murdering a Trainspotting T2 actor has been acquitted of 13 other charges.

Bradley Welsh, 48, was fatally shot at his flat in the west end of Edinburgh on April 17 2019.

Sean Orman, 30, had pleaded not guilty to all 15 charges against him, including murder, attempted murder, firearms and drugs offences, and is on trial at the High Court in Edinburgh.

The Crown removed 13 of the charges from the indictment on Wednesday, including assault, drug and driving offences.

Judge Lord Beckett told him he had been acquitted of these allegations.

Giving evidence on Wednesday, Orman claimed to have never heard of Mr McMillan until the trial got under way.

The 30-year-old denied being at a property in Pitcairn Grove, Edinburgh, on March 13 2019 when the attempted murder was said to have taken place. He said he could not recall where he was.

Orman said: “I can’t remember, I have no reason to remember.”

He claimed to have got involved with being paid to move stolen cars by a man he had met in prison, known as Omar, after his release in February 2019.

Orman had received a five-year jail term for assault and robbery at a bookmakers, the court has heard.

The trial before judge Lord Beckett continues.
