A second man has been charged in connection with the murder of a dad whose body was found in a burnt-out car in South Lanarkshire.
Darren Owen, 22, appeared at Hamilton Sheriff Court on Tuesday over the killing of Rafal Lyko in February 2019.
The body of the 36-year-old was discovered inside the ruined Mercedes with a gunshot to the head in Blantyre’s Greenhill Park.
A pathology report later determined the Polish national was dead before entering the vehicle and police launched a murder investigation.
Mr Lyko, whose partner and child live in Poland, had travelled to Scotland only days earlier and had been visiting family in Tayside.
Owen, from Glasgow, made no plea and has been remanded in custody for further examination.
The Crown Office confirmed he would reappear in court within the next eight days.
It comes after Thomas Wilson, 25, from Glasgow, appeared in court earlier this month charged with his murder.
