Woman charged after man's death in Edinburgh

A 37-year-old woman has been charged in connection with the death of a man in a flat in Edinburgh, police have said.

Officers were called to an address in the city's Glenure Loan, at half-past midnight on Christmas Day, where they found the 47-year-old male's body.

The woman was detained at the scene as officers said the death was being treated as suspicious.

Police Scotland said the woman was later charged and is expected to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on Friday.

Officers asked anyone who can help with the inquiry to come forward.

A Police Scotland spokesman said: "I would like to reassure local people, however, that there is no risk to nearby residents or the general public."
