Man, 37, charged with murder

A man has appeared in court charged with murder after the death of another man in his home.

Ryan McKechnie, 31, was found dead at the property in James Street, Whins of Milton, near Bannockburn, at around 10.30am last Tuesday.

Officers went to his home after concerns that Mr McKechnie had not been seen for around three days.

His body was found inside and an investigation launched.

William Milne Russell, 37, from Bannockburn, was charged with murder when he appeared on petition in private at Stirling Sheriff Court yesterday, the Crown Office said.

He made no plea or declaration.

The case was continued for further examination and he was remanded in custody.
