Two women have appeared in court charged with murder after the death of a man whose body was found in an Edinburgh flat last month.

Alexander Duncan, 59, was found dead in a property in Primrose Street in the Leith area on 19 April.

At Edinburgh Sheriff Court, Tracey McLean, 32, and Seka Ritchie, 31, were both charged with murder and attempting to pervert the course of justice.

They made no plea or declaration and were remanded in custody.

The case was continued for further examination.
