Man returns to court over Dundee death

A 50-year-old man has appeared in court for the second time 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.

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 4 July.

He died the following day in Ninewells Hospital.

Mr Anderson made no plea or declaration during a private hearing at Dundee Sheriff Court before Sheriff Lorna Drummond QC.

He was remanded in custody and the case was fully committed for trial.
