A man has appeared in court charged with the rape and murder of a 67-year-old woman in her Glasgow flat.

Jason Graham, 30, allegedly assaulted Esther Brown at the property on West Princes Street, Woodlands.

She was found dead at about 16:00 on Tuesday.

Mr Graham, who has also been separately charged with robbery, made no plea at a hearing at Glasgow Sheriff Court. He was remanded in custody pending further examination by Sheriff Simon Pender.

Floral tributes were left at the gate of a park across the road from where Ms Brown was found, with a card reading "Esther - loved and cherished by us and by Jesus xxx".

Supt Ross Allan from Police Scotland said: "Esther was a much loved and active member of the community here in the Woodlands area of Glasgow through her charity work and her willingness and commitment towards helping others."
