A man has appeared in court charged with murdering his wife at their house in East Renfrewshire.

Prosecutors allege that he repeatedly stabbed the mother-of-two at the house in Beech Avenue.
During a private appearance at Paisley Sheriff Court, Mr Kerr made no plea or declaration and was remanded in custody.
The case against him was continued for prosecutors to investigate further and he is expected to make a second court appearance next week.
