A man has appeared in court accused of murder after the death of a man outside a pub in Dundee.
Jamie Cumming is alleged to have stabbed James Getty outside the Maltman public house on the city’s Mains Road on Friday night.
Mr Cumming, 35, was detained by police on Saturday before being arrested and charged over the incident.
On Monday, he made a brief appearance in private on petition at Dundee Sheriff Court accused of murdering Mr Getty.
It is alleged that on June 1 at the junction of Mains Road and Mid Road, Dundee, Mr Cumming assaulted Mr Getty and repeatedly struck him on the body with a knife or similar instrument.
The charge alleges that those acts caused severe injury and that Mr Cumming murdered Mr Getty.
Mr Cumming made no plea or declaration during the 30-second hearing.
His lawyer Andy Lyall made no application for bail and Sheriff Tom Hughes remanded him in custody.
The case was continued for further examination and Mr Cumming is expected to appear in court again next week for a further hearing.
