Jurors in the Alesha MacPhail murder trial have heard that her father sold cannabis to the teenager accused of killing her.
Robert MacPhail, 26, admitted doing deals with the 16-year-old boy who lived on the Isle of Bute.
The teenager – who cannot be named because of his age – denies abducting, raping and murdering Alesha last July.
He has lodged a special defence claiming the crime was committed by a woman called Toni Louise McLachlan.
Alesha’s body was found in the grounds of a former hotel on 2 July last year.
Giving evidence at the High Court in Glasgow, Mr MacPhail said he last sold the drug to the 16-year-old accused a few months before Alesha was killed.
