A man is to stand trial next summer charged with raping a woman.

Reece McGillion is accused of carrying out the sex attack at a house in Linwood, Renfrewshire on July 12 2020.

The allegation includes claims the 28 year-old, of Possilpark, Glasgow, did pin the woman down on a bed, bit her, pulled her on the body and grabbed her hair.

The case called today/yesterday for a brief hearing at the High Court in Glasgow, where his lawyer Louise Arrol pled not guilty on his behalf.

She also lodged a special defence of consent in connection with the charge.

The advocate added: “The defence is ready for trial.”

Lady Stacey set a trial due to begin next July in Paisley. The case could last up to four days.

Bail for McGillion was continued meantime.
