A TEENAGER has denied killing a Little Sutton man outside a social club in Aberdeen.
Craig Hobin, 18, is alleged to have attacked father-of-two Andrew Moor, who had been living in Scotland for more than a decade, outside the Balgownie Road Club in the early hours of Saturday, March 18.
He appeared at Aberdeen High Court on Thursday, where he denied a charge of culpable homicide.
Hobin is accused of punching Mr Moor on the head, causing him to fall to the ground.
He was rushed to the city's Royal Infirmary but was so badly hurt, he died the following day.
Hobin has lodged a special defence, details of which were not revealed in court, and his preliminary hearing was deferred until January 9.
Mr Moor, who worked as a part-time snow-board instructor, was married to Pauline. The couple had two young boys, Jamie and Lee.
His parents, Jim and Jennifer Moor, of Starbeck Drive, Little Sutton, paid a warm tribute to their son in the Pioneer in March.
Mrs Moor said: 'Andrew was a loving son and brother and a devoted father and husband who lived life to the full and touched the hearts of everyone he met.'
She also told how Mr Moor was well thought-of in the community and still had many friends in the town, despite leaving the area 12 years ago.
As a child, Mr Moor attended Sutton Green Primary and Sutton High before working at steel cladding firm HH Robertson's on Cromwell Road.
He took voluntary redundancy in the early 1990s and went travelling with friends to the Lake District, where he met Pauline, before moving to Aberdeen.
