Dumfries woman charged with murder attempt

A Dumfries woman has been charged in court with attempting to murder another woman after making death threats.

Alison McKie, 30, of the town's Gladstone Road, appeared in private before Sheriff Tom Ward.

She was on a petition alleging she put an accelerant on the door of a house in the Troqueer area on Monday and set fire to it in the knowledge that a woman was inside the property.

No plea was made at Dumfries Sheriff Court and the case was continued.
