Man arrested in connection with attempted murder

AUSTRALIAN POLICE will hand over a man suspected of involvement in the attempted murder of a high profile Scottish accountant, The Scotsman reports.

The 45-year-old man was taken into custody in connection with a slashing attack on Leslie Cumming, 62, the former chief accountant of the Law Society of Scotland, who was set upon outside his Murrayfield home in January 2006.

The Scotsman reports a £10,000 reward and partial DNA profile had failed to connect any suspect with the crime. The man was arrested in Sydney and will be transported to Scotland.
