A woman has appeared in court charged with murdering a grandmother found beaten in her own home.

Mary Logie, 82, was found dead in the living-room of her flat in the Green Gates area of Leven, Fife, at about 8pm on January 5.

The pensioner was a regular churchgoer who had planned to visit a friend in hospital that day but did not turn up.

Police launched a major investigation into her death and arrested a woman on Wednesday.

Sandra Gaughan or Weir, 40, was charged with murder when she appeared in private at Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court on Thursday.
