A woman accused of murdering a Fife grandmother is now also facing charges of theft and attempting to pervert the course of justice.

Sandra Weir, 40, is accused of killing her neighbour Mary Logie, 82. Both women lived in Green Gates in Leven.

The pensioner was found dead in her home on 5 January.

Ms Weir appeared on petition at Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court and made no plea or declaration to five charges. She was fully committed for trial.

She initially appeared in court last week facing a single charge of murder. Prosecutors have now added a further four charges.

She now faces charges of murder, theft, theft by opening a lockfast place, attempting to pervert the course of justice and attempting to defeat the ends of justice.

Solicitor David Fitzpatrick made no motion for bail on her behalf and she was remanded in custody.
