The funeral of a young woman allegedly murdered in Angus will take place next week.
Neomi Smith died in a property in Brechin’s Swan Street in the early hours of Sunday June 9.
Despite the efforts of emergency services, the 23-year-old succumbed to injuries she had sustained.
Her father, John Smith, confirmed his daughter’s funeral is to be held in Aberdeen on Wednesday.
In a Facebook post he said: “It’s with a broken heart I’m letting all Neomi’s friends and family know, Neomi’s funeral service will be on Wednesday 10th July @ 1.15pm at Aberdeen Crematorium West Chapel, to which all family and friends are respectively invited.
“Family flowers only please but donations on the day to Horseback UK.”
Mr Smith had earlier spoken of his devastation following the Angus tragedy saying: “She was my life, my everything and my heart has been completely broken. To be taken from me at such a young age.
“Sweet dreams my little angel. Till we meet again. Miss you with all my heart, love you always.”
Many people paid tribute to care home worker Miss Smith, describing her as “a beautiful girl inside and out”.
Friends also said she was “one in a million”.
The Aboyne-based Horseback UK charity which will receive the donations from the funeral service uses horsemanship to inspire recovery, regain self-esteem and provide a new sense of purpose and community for injured, wounded and sick ex-military personnel.
It was established more than a decade ago by a former Royal Marine who served with Arbroath-based 45 Commando.
The police investigation into the death led to part of Brechin town centre being sealed off and the arrest of a local man.
Keith Rizzo, also 23, from Brechin is facing a charge of murdering Miss Smith.
He made no plea to the charge during two appearances in private at Forfar Sheriff Court last month and was remanded in custody.
