It was the prosecution’s case that he was involved in the deployment of people directly involved in the murder and the preparations that preceded it.
The evidence against him was circumstantial. He was spotted driving around the area at the time and CCTV captured him breaking up a phone and handing the pieces of it to a woman whom he also gave the key to the car he was driving.
It took the non-jury court three hours to deliver its judgement today and Mr. Thompson immediately left the dock and went back to the cells after he was found guilty.
The court heard Mr. Douglas’ family didn’t want to make Victim Impact Statements.
