Man, 43, Charged With Murdering Bodybuilder

A man has been charged with murder following the death of a bodybuilder who recently won the Mr Scotland title.

Michael O'Hanlon, 45, was found injured at Moorpark industrial estate in Stevenston, North Ayrshire, at about midday on Monday.

Emergency services were called to the estate but Mr O'Hanlon, who ran the Musclebox bodybuilding shops, died at the scene.

Steven Kirkwood, 43, appeared from custody at Kilmarnock Sheriff Court on Tuesday accused of murder.

He made no plea or declaration at the private hearing and was committed for further examination and remanded in custody.

Kirkwood, of Stevenston, is expected to appear in court again next week.

Mr O'Hanlon, from Irvine, had won the National Amateur Body Builders' Association (NABBA) Mr Scotland title in March this year.

According to the NABBA website, he won the class two contest and the overall competition in 2016, having first won the title 23 years ago.
