She was beaten to death at an address in Stewart Court - being battered with a dog lead during the brutal attack.

Kinloch (34) of Arbroath, and Britt (32) of Dunfermline, made no plea to a single charge of breach of the peace during separate hearings at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

Solicitor Gary Foulis argued Kinloch should be granted bail ahead of further court dates being set.

Sheriff Pino di Emidio continued the case for further examination and granted bail to both accused ahead of further court dates being set.
