A suspect has appeared in court accused of murdering a man with a knife and scissors.

Darren McDade, 33, allegedly assaulted Kyle Zybilowicz, 29, at a flat in Glasgow’s Dumbreck on July 23, 2023.

Mr Zybilowicz’s body was found at the property on Dumbreck Court the next afternoon.

Court papers allege McDade repeatedly struck the NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde healthcare support worker on the head and body with a knife and a pair of scissors or another implement.

McDade, of the city’s Kelvindale, faces a separate allegation of attempting to pervert the course of justice.

The charge claims he removed a weapon from the flat on Dumbreck Court and disposed of it.

It is further claimed that he burned items of clothing.

McDade made no plea through his lawyer Kevin Corr at a private hearing at Glasgow Sheriff Court on Thursday, July 27.

He was remanded in custody and committed for further examination by Sheriff Tom Hughes.

McDade will appear at court again within the next eight days.
