A second man has been arrested over the death of a woman in Glasgow more than 20 years ago.

Tracey Wylde, 21, was found dead in her flat in Barmulloch in November 1997.

Sougat Mukherjee was arrested in Mumbai, India, in connection with the death in January 2015 but was later bailed by a New Delhi court.

A second man, aged 43, has now been arrested and charged by Police Scotland in connection with the death.

He is due to appear at Glasgow Sheriff Court on Wednesday.

A force spokesman said: "Police Scotland can confirm that a 43-year-old man has been arrested and charged in connection with the death of Tracey Wylde.

"Tracey's family has been informed of this development and officers continue to liaise closely with her family."
