Annalise Johnstone

A 28-year-old woman has been arrested in connection with the alleged murder of 22-year-old Annalise Johnstone.

Annalise’s body was found in a wooded area at the roadside of the B8062 between Auchterarder and Dunning on Thursday, 10 May.

Later that month, Annalise’s brother Jordan, 24, appeared at Perth Sheriff Court charged with allegedly murdering his sister Annalise at the Maggie Wall’s Memorial in Dunning.

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.
