A man has been jailed for life after carrying out a murder with a sword after a bust up over a chocolate bar. William McArdle, 25, killed one man and left another fighting for his life at Castleview House in the Gilmerton area of Edinburgh on 11 January. Last month McArdle was found guilty of killing William McPhee, 43, and attempting to murder Colin Stewart, 41. He was told at the High Court in Edinburgh he must serve at least 22 years in prison for the attacks. Chanelle Barrett, 19, who last month was convicted of assaulting Mr McPhee, and of the attempted murder of Mr Stewart, received a nine-year sentence. Judge Michael O'Grady said: "It seems almost beyond belief that a trivial dispute over a bar of chocolate could set in train events that would lead to one man dead and one man struggling for his life.
