A woman has been accused of stabbing her partner to death on Christmas Day.
Adriana Ciurar, 24, allegedly murdered Samoila Stoica last December 25 at a flat in Kirkcaldy, Fife.
Mr Stoica is said to have been left so severely injured by an attack that he died that day in hospital.
Ciurar appeared via video link for a short hearing at the High Court in Glasgow on Thursday.
Lady Stacey adjourned the case until September. No trial date was set.
She said: “It may be that a trial can be fixed at that time, but it may depend on the state of the things with the pandemic.”
