A man has been charged with murdering his mother and attempting to murder his father at the couple's home in Troon.

Graime Morris, 38, was held in London after 63-year-old Ann Morris died in hospital following an incident at her home in Polo Gardens on Friday night.

His father Fred, 64, was seriously injured in the same incident.

Mr Morris, whose address was given as Hove, Sussex, made no plea or declaration at Ayr Sheriff Court and was remanded in custody.

Officers were called to the Morris' home, in South Ayrshire, at 19:45 on Friday.

The couple were taken to Crosshouse Hospital in Kilmarnock, where Mrs Morris later died.

On Saturday, police said officers were travelling to London to talk to Mr Morris, who was being held in custody in connection with the incident.

He was escorted to Scotland and arrested on Monday.
