Published 05 June 2019
Police Scotland has acknowledged the conviction and sentencing of Ryan Brandie, who has been convicted of the murder of Gary Gallogley in Inverness.
Mr Gallogley, 54, died on Thursday, April 5 following a fire at his home on Mackintosh Road on Tuesday, April 3.
Brandie, 24, was found guilty of murder, by a jury following a trial at the High Court in Glasgow.
He has been sentenced to serve 19 years imprisonment.
Senior investigating officer Detective Inspector Eddie Ross said: "Gary Gallogley was a vulnerable man who did nothing to deserve his brutal and savage death at the hands of Ryan Brandie.
"Brandie's actions which led to Mr Gallogley's death and his subsequent efforts to avoid taking responsibility afterwards were both wicked and reckless. It is right that he will face the consequences of his horrendous behaviour.
"While nothing can change what happened, I hope this conviction can bring some form of closure to Mr Gallogley's family."
