Chainsaw attacker pleads guilty to attempted murder

A CRAZED man carried out a horrific chainsaw attack on his ex-lover’s elderly parents in Fort William days after she ended their relationship.

James MacDonald, 48, burst into John and Flora MacPherson’s home threatening to kill their daughter Tracey. He stood in their living room revving a chainsaw before turning it on terrified Flora and then John as he tried to save his wife. The 74-year-old almost had his whole arm hacked off.

Flora, 63, was also left badly injured as MacDonald fled the house in Fort William.
