A man will stand trial accused of killing a 47-year-old in Perth by punching him on the head and body.
James Williamson denies the culpable homicide of Graeme Hughes at Uist Place on November 4.
Prosecutors allege that Mr Williamson seized hold of Mr Hughes and repeatedly punched him to his injury, causing him to collapse.
The 31-year-old denies the charge and has lodged a special defence of self-defence. He also denies a charge of racially aggravated assault at a Perth takeaway and behaving in a threatening manner at Perth police station and PRI.
Judge Lady Stacey fixed a trial date of June 29 at the High Court in Glasgow.
