Murray, shown here, was once in prison for stalking Bethany Haines. However, an appellant court later declared that the sentence was too harsh.

Judges of appeal ruled that Murray’s sentence was excessively harsh and he was sent back to work. 

Murray, 26 years old, was sentenced to another term in the same court. He admitted that he had been abusing three of his then-girlfriends.

Michael Sweeney (fiscal depute) described an unsettling pattern of conduct that went on for six years and involved four women.

Murray from Geyfriars Hostel (Perth) pleaded guilty in the following: He engaged in conduct between November 2013, and July 2018, which put his former partner in a position of fear or alarm.

He yelled at her in Coupar Angus, Alyth and called her names, and monitored her conversations on her cell phone.

Sweeney said that she experienced a sense of control when she reached 18 years old.

“He began arguments with her, calling her buddies junkies to create a divide between them and their friends.

Bethany is the daughter of murdered British aid worker David Haines who was killed by ISIS extremist Jihadi John in September 2014

Bethany was the daughter of David Haines, a British humanitarian who was murdered by Jihadi John in September 2014.

Between June 2014 to December 2015, he attacked her repeatedly by hitting her in the face and grabbing her by her clothing, pulling her toward him.

He repeatedly tossed objects, even a cell phone, at her.

Murray was also accused of grabbing Murray by the throat, placing her on a sofa and pining her to it.

He admitted further that he had assaulted another partner between September 2016 to October 2016 at another Coupar Angus home and threw a beer at her.

From August 2018 to March 2019, he was at Muirhead addresses engaging in conduct that left a third female, his girlfriend, in a panic or fearful state.

While he monitored her phone calls and social media, he accused her of cheating while threatening her with harm.

He attacked her in March 2019 and then threw him against a wall to cause her injuries.

Sweeney stated that she was “constantly intimidated” by the accused.

“He called her fat, and she was ugly.

“He said to her, No one wants to be with me.” “You won’t be with anybody after me.”

Murray admitted that he had a series of abusive behavior towards a partner from April to October 2019

He repeatedly accused her, accusing her of lying, being unfaithful and demanding her whereabouts.

He hit walls with his fists and called her names like’slut and ‘whore.

Sheriff Euan duthie was allowed to defer his sentence until January 26 in exchange for background reports.

Murray was released on bail by him, who stated that Murray’s custodial sentence was at his forefront.

Bethany Haines (then 20 years old) previously spoke of her terror when Murray was released by the judges in 2018.

She stated that she couldn’t believe someone could be allowed to pay back to the community for doing such terrible things.

Bethany’s father David, a 44-year-old charity worker, was shot and killed in terrorist attacks on September 2014.
