Three men have appeared in court charged with the murder of a 60-year-old man in Ayrshire.

Harry Hood, 44, Dale Russell, 34, and Ross Russell, 33, are accused of killing Arthur Green, whose body was discovered by a relative at his home in Prestwick on 20 November.

They made no plea or declaration during a private hearing at Ayr Sheriff Court.

They were granted bail but this was appealed immediately by prosecutors and all three were remanded in custody.

A further hearing is due to take place within 48 hours.
