A HOSPITAL worker and her daughter were killed in a brutal knife attack in Scotland overnight.
Mum-of-four Emma Robertson Coupland, 39, was killed outside her work at Crosshouse Hospital in Kilmarnock at around 7.45pm last night.
Daughter Nicole Anderson, 24, was targeted by the same knifeman less than two miles away at the takeaway shop where she worked.
A third incident, a fatal road crash on the A76 in which a 40-year-old man died, is believed to be linked to the attacks, cops say.
