Man admits pointing loaded shotgun at wife
A former Rousay resident has admitted turning a loaded shotgun on two people, on the island, last October.
Colin Baulch brandished the weapon at his estranged wife, Wendy, and John Gibson, at an address in Rousay, on October 19, 2010.
At the High Court in Aberdeen today, Baulch, 66, admitted having a firearm and causing John Gibson to believe that the weapon would be used in violence against him. He admitted the same charge in relation to his wife.
Lord Matthews deferred sentence for reports until next month and remanded Baulch in custody.
