William Currie was jailed for life in 1993 for the murder of 54-year-old Robert McCurtie, who he beat with a hard object before repeatedly stamping on his head.

A murderer who battered a night watchman to death died behind bars almost three decades after the brutal killing. William Currie was jailed for life in 1993 for the murder of 54-year-old Robert McCurtie who he beat with a hard object before repeatedly stamping on his head.

Detailed findings of a Fatal Accident Inquiry published earlier this week explained the killer had died from heart disease and no precautions could have reasonably been taken by the prison service to prevent it. Details of criminal past were outlined in the report following the hearing in front of Sheriff John Hamilton at Hamilton Sheriff Court.

He was jailed on March 1993 for the murder of Mr McCurtie at Dumfries indoor market the previous year. After his release on licence in 2014, he was recalled to prison in June 2020 for breaching two of his conditions.
