A 34-year-old man has appeared in court charged with murdering a Thai woman at the SECC complex in Glasgow.

Clive Carter, who is believed to be a security guard with G4S, is accused of killing Khanokporn Satjawat on Monday.

He allegedly attacked the 42-year-old in a second floor female toilet at the Clyde Auditorium by striking her on the head and body with an instrument.

Mr Carter, from Motherwell, made no plea or declaration at Glasgow Sheriff Court and was remanded in custody.

He appeared before Sheriff Danny Scullion and is expected to appear in court again next week.

A spokesperson at G4S said: "We are cooperating fully with Strathclyde Police and their investigation and it would be inappropriate to comment further at this time."

Ms Satjawat, a pharmaceutical firm manager, died while attending a conference on HIV drug therapy at the auditorium, which is commonly known as the Armadillo, on the banks of the Clyde, west of the city centre.
