Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court.

A man has appeared in court charged with the murder of a man in Glenrothes at the weekend.

Greig Love, 20, of Glenrothes, made no plea when he appeared at Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court yesterday and was remanded in custody.

His appearance followed the death of Daniel O’Farrell.

Paramedics were called to a house in Greenlaw Crescent, in the town’s Macedonia area, at around 10am on Saturday – however, the 21-year-old was declared dead at the scene.

Yesterday, a visible police presence remained outside the terraced property, with uniformed officers stationed at a cordon around the house.

It has since emerged that Mr O’Farrell became father to a baby girl – his third child – less than a fortnight ago, describing himself in an online post as “the happiest dad alive”.
