A 24-year-old man has been charged with murdering his sister by repeatedly stabbing her in the neck.
Jordan Johnstone, 24, allegedly murdered his sister Annalise at the Maggie Wall’s Memorial in the Perthshire village of Dunning on May 9 or 10 this year.
Johnstone appeared briefly in private at Perth Sheriff Court today to face a petition alleging he murdered his younger sibling.
The petition alleges that Johnstone repeatedly struck his sister in the neck with a sharp implement at the witch’s monument next to the B8062 road running between Auchterarder and Dunning.
Johnstone, who had been living in Perthshire, also faced a second charge alleging he had stolen a caravan in Irvine, Ayrshire, on May 9.
He made no plea and the case against him was continued for further examination. Solicitor Jim Laverty made no motion for bail and Johnstone was remanded in custody.
