Two people have appeared in court in connection with the death of a man found in a Coatbridge car park.

The body of Mark Donnelly, 27, from Motherwell, was discovered in Hozier Street on Sunday morning.

Martin MacMaikain, 28, from Bellshill and Amanda Cook, 21, from Coatbridge appeared at Airdrie Sheriff Court on charges of murder and attempting to defeat the ends of justice.

They made no plea or declaration and both were remanded in custody.

It is thought Mr Donnelly spent Saturday in the town centre and he was seen in nearby Bellshill at 17:00.

Hozier Street is in the Whifflet area, south of Coatbridge town centre and close to the train station.
