A man has appeared in court charged with murder following the death of a father-of-four in Ayrshire.

Allan Robertson, 26, is accused of killing John Smith, 52, who was stabbed at his home in Stevenston on 8 October.

He is also accused of assault to severe injury after John McDade, 30, was wounded in the alleged incident at the town's Misk Knowes.

Robertson, of Glasgow, made no plea nor declaration at Kilmarnock Sheriff Court and was remanded in custody.

Mr Smith died in hospital three days after the stabbing.

On Friday detectives issued CCTV images of Allan Robertson and another man they want to trace - 30-year-old Craig Munro.

They are still trying to locate Mr Munro, who the public have been advised not to approach.

A young mother from Ayr, Farrah Fadhli is still missing.

It is understood she might have information about Mr Smith's murder.
