Woman in court on Troon murder charge

A 38-year-old woman has appeared in court charged with murdering her sister at the home they shared in Troon in Ayrshire.

Lynnette Greenop is accused of assaulting her 46-year-old sister Sharon on various occasions between August and November this year.

The charge accuses Ms Greenop of repeatedly striking her sister on the head and body.

It said she compressed her neck and assaulted her by other means unknown.

Lynnette Greenop is also accused of neglect and failing to obtain medical assistance for her sister.

Her lawyer Peter Lockhart confirmed she appeared on petition at Ayr Sheriff Court on Monday afternoon and made no plea. She was remanded in custody.

Sharon Greenop's 19-year-old daughter Shayla, who had also been detained by the police, did not appear in court and was released by police pending further inquiries.
