A man who was allegedly murdered following an incident in the city centre hours into New Year’s Day will be laid to rest later this month.
Brian Fox was allegedly punched to death at around 1.15am on January 1.
Mr Fox, 62, was found dying at a taxi rank in Nethergate, in Dundee’s city centre, and taken to Ninewells Hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries.
Wes Reid and Adam Valentine are to stand trial later this year accused of murdering Mr Fox.
His funeral is due to be held on Monday February 25 at Dundee Crematorium.
In a notice about the funeral plans, Mr Fox was described as a beloved son of the late William and Christina and a sorely missed brother, brother-in-law, uncle, great-uncle and “friend to many”.
The service starts at 1.30pm and family flowers only have been requested. Donations in lieu of flowers can be made by mourners at the crematorium.
Police spent several days attempting to identify Mr Fox in the days immediately after his death.
Reid, 19, of Newport Road, Tayport, and Valentine, 24, of Thurso Crescent, faced a petition at the sheriff court last month alleging that on New Year’s Day, at Nethergate, they punched Brian Fox, causing him to fall to the ground. It is further alleged that afterMr Fox fell to the pavement, he was punched again.
Neither Reid nor Adam made any plea and the cases against them were fully committed for trial. Both were remanded in custody pending further court dates being set.
A third accused, Shannon Sykes, also appeared in court with the pair facing charges of assault relating to alleged attacks in the moments leading up to the alleged murder.
Sykes, 21, of Glasgow, faced two charges of assault. She was released on bail ahead of further court dates being set.
