Man, 62, accused of killing wife in Kirkintilloch house
A man has appeared in court accused of strangling his wife with a dressing gown at a house in East Dunbartonshire.
Jack Smith is said to have murdered Susan Smith at the property in Parkview Avenue, Kirkintilloch, last February.
The 62-year-old is alleged to have used a dressing gown collar and his hands to restrict her breathing.
At the High Court in Glasgow, judge Lady Smith adjourned the case until later this year. Mr Smith was allowed to remain on bail.
