Man, 36, appears in court charged with 97-year-old's murder

A man has appeared in court following the death of a 97-year-old woman in Fife.

Sandeep Patel, 36, appeared on petition at Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court today.

He faces two charges - one of murder, and another of being involved in a fraudulent scheme.

It follows the discovery of the body of Annie Temple in Kinglassie last month.

Patel, whose address is only given as Fife, made no plea or declaration.

He was remanded in custody ahead of a further appearance within the next eight days.
