Murder: Teens appear in court over man's death.

Two teenagers have appeared in court charged with the murder of a man in Aberdeen.

Scott Hector was found dead in Marischal Court in the city on Friday morning.

The 20-year-old’s heartbroken family said he was a “dearly beloved son, a brother, grandson, nephew, cousin and a friend to many.”

An 18-year-old man and a 17-year-old boy appeared at Aberdeen Sheriff Court on Tuesday charged with his murder.

Sean Patrick O’Halloran and the 17-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, both made no plea.

The pair were committed for further examination and remanded in custody. 

They will next appear in court within eight days.
