A 28-year-old Kirkcaldy woman has been remanded in custody after appearing on petition alleging murder today (Wednesday).

Tammy Elizabeth Hoggan made a brief appearance in private before Sheriff Ian Anderson at Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court.

She made no plea or declaration to the charge and the case was continued for further examination.

Hoggan was remanded in custody and will return to court at a future date.

Her appearance followed the death of a 48-year-old man at a house in Melrose Crescent, Kirkcaldy, at around 3.30 a.m. on Tuesday morning.

No further details, including that of the man’s identity have been released.

Scenes of crime officers were still scouring the area around the communal block where the incident is believed to have taken place yesterday.

She is expected to appear at Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court today (Wednesday).
