The brother of a man who died in a fire in Milngavie, East Dunbartonshire, on New Year's Day has appeared in court charged with his murder.

Blair Logan, 26, also faces two other charges - one of attempted murder, and one of assault to injury, danger to life and attempted murder.

He made no plea or declaration at Dumbarton Sheriff Court.

Cameron Logan, 23, died in the blaze at the family home. His girlfriend Rebecca Williams is in hospital.

His parents were treated for smoke inhalation.

Blair Logan was remanded in custody following the private court appearance.

Ms Williams, a journalist with Global Radio, was initially taken to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow in a critical condition.

She was later transferred to Glasgow Royal Infirmary where she is now said to be in a stable condition.

On Monday, forensic officers were continuing their investigations at the house.
