Brother charged with fraud after Denny body find

A 59-year-old man has been charged with theft and fraud after the discovery of human remains in a flat late last year.

The body of John Brown, 69, known as Ian, was found at 45 Bridge Crescent in Denny on 19 December 2010.

The man who has been charged is understood to be Mr Brown's brother. He is expected to appear in court at a later date.

Central Scotland Police said the death of the 69-year-old was not now being treated as suspicious.

A spokeswoman said: "The circumstances were initially believed to be suspicious.

"A man has been charged with fraud and theft as a result of the investigation, but the death is no longer being treated as suspicious."
