A convicted killer has been sent back to jail after carrying out a brutal Christmas Day axe attack that left a man needing surgery on his penis.
Steven Souley, who was convicted of culpable homicide in 2011, stormed into a house party in Summerston, Glasgow, and assaulted Robert Eadie just six months after he was released in 2014.
The 26-year-old, along with accomplice Zico Malavin, 20, repeatedly hit Mr Eadie with an axe and knife and left him with a 'deep groin wound'.
Both men pleaded guilty to assault to severe injury and permanent disfigurement at Glasgow High Court on Thursday. They will be sentenced in Edinburgh next month and remain in custody.
Prosecutors said Souley arrived with Malavin at Mr Eadie's sister's flat around midnight on the day of the attack.
Souley was armed with an axe while Malavin, who was sporting a red Christmas jumper, was clutching a knife. Mr Eadie's sister, who knew the pair, immediately asked them to leave.
Allan Nicol, prosecuting, told the court: 'Mr Eadie tried to put them out, but, as he did so, both attacked him.
'He was repeatedly struck on the head and body with the axe and knife.'
The duo were eventually forced out and they fled the scene. Mr Eadie, who was covered in blood, was taken to hospital
The court heard Mr Eadie, 25, needed an operation to repair the 'deep wound' to his groin and penis. He also suffered injuries to his head and hand.

Souley had previously been sentenced to seven years for culpable homicide in 2011.
He was jailed over his involvement in 41-year-old Andrew Curran's death in a Glasgow park following a row over Buckfast.
Malavin's relations Angus and Zak were found guilty of murder and jailed for 18 and 17 years respectively.
He was deemed safe enough to be freed early in May 2014 before attacking Mr Eadie six months later.
