Man in court over Dundee death

A 50-year-old man has appeared in court accused of killing another man in Dundee.

Mark Anderson is alleged to have repeatedly struck 49-year-old Nigel Poustie on the head and body with an unknown implement on Monday.

Prosecutors allege he then exposed Mr Poustie to burning liquid or steam on his head and body, causing him to die from his injuries.

Mr Poustie was found seriously injured in Charleston Drive on Monday evening.

He died the following day in Ninewells Hospital.

Mr Anderson, from Dundee, is also accused of being concerned in the supply of diazepam on 1 July.

He made no plea or declaration during a private hearing at Dundee Sheriff Court before Sheriff Alastair Brown and was remanded in custody ahead of a second appearance next week.
