Dundee screwdriver killer wins legal battle to track down child he may have fathered

Dundee screwdriver killer wins legal battle to track down child he may have fathered

A Dundee man who stabbed a woman to death with a screwdriver 40 years ago has won a legal battle to help him track down a child he may have fathered.

Robert Kyle was jailed for life in 1978 after a frenzied attack on 39-year-old Dora Mackay.

Some years ago, he approached the council to ask for details on his potential offspring, however, the local authority refused, fearing Kyle may end up demanding access rights.

Sheriff George Way has now ruled the council must supply him with the child’s name, address, and date of birth.

The mother of the youngster had reportedly backed out of co-operating with Kyle after an earlier hearing this month heard the 58-year-old is potentially the father.

A spokesman for the council said: “We are awaiting the court order and will consider our response once received.”
