A convicted murderer has been declared bankrupt after being sued for damages by his victims family.
William Kean is serving a life sentence after being found guilty of killing 80-year-old Jenny Methven in February 2012.
Kean was declared bankrupt at Perth Sheriff Court after withdrawing his defence against the claim for compensation by Mrs Methvens son.
Kean has now been ordered to pay £86,000 in damages to David Methven.

In a letter to the court, Kean said he was no longer opposing the application for sequestration.
