A former police inspector has appeared in court accused of murdering his wife.
Keith Farquharson, 60, appeared in private at Aberdeen Sheriff Court facing the alleged charge.
Police were called to a property in Angusfield Avenue on Thursday morning after it emerged Alice Farquharson had died.
Her husband, whose general address was given as Aberdeen in court paperwork, also faces a charge of attempting to defeat the ends of justice.
He made no plea during the behind-closed-doors hearing.
