A Blairgowrie man has made a second appearance in court following the alleged murder of a Dundee father-of-four.
Murray Fotheringham is accused of punching and stabbing John Donachy to death at an address in Alyth.
The 26-year-old’s body was discovered at Hazel Court on Saturday, March 3, sparking a major police investigation.
Fotheringham, 35, appeared on petition for a second time at Perth Sheriff Court on Wednesday afternoon.
He was committed for further examination and remanded in custody.
A date for his next appearance has still to be set.
The family of Mr Donachy described him as “one in a billion” and said they were having difficulty coming to terms with his sudden death.
