A man has appeared in court charged with the murder of a 20-year-old man whose body was found outside a pub in East Kilbride.

Andrew Deighan is accused of killing Matthew Martin in the town last Monday.

The 23-year-old, from Cambuslang, made no plea or declaration at Hamilton Sheriff Court and was remanded into custody.

Mr Martin's body was discovered behind the Village Inn pub, in the town's Stuart Street, on 7 February.

Mr Deighan is expected to appear in court again next week.
