A second man has appeared in court charged with murder almost a decade after the discovery of a body in a farmer's field in Renfrewshire.

The remains of 34-year-old Martin Toner were discovered in Langbank in July 2004.

John McDonald, from Glasgow, appeared at Paisley Sheriff Court on Tuesday charged with murder and attempting to pervert the course of justice.

The 56-year-old made no plea or declaration and was granted bail.

Father-of-two Mr Toner was last seen on the afternoon of 29 June 2004 in Langbank's Main Street.

Another man has previously been charged in connection with his death.

In December, Douglas Fleming from the Aviemore area appeared in court charged with murder and attempting to pervert the course of justice.

He made no plea or declaration at Paisley Sheriff Court and was bailed pending further examination.
