A man has been charged after the death of a woman at her home in Aberdeen.
Emergency services were called to Clifton Road at around half past four in the morning yesterday, but Carol Milne was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police and forensic units cordoned the property off while investigations were carried out.
Police arrested a 24-year-old man in connection with the mum-of-two’s death – he’s due in Aberdeen Sheriff Court on Monday.
A family statement reads: “Carol was well-known and loved by many, and will be sorely missed by all those who knew and loved her. We would ask that our privacy is respected at this incredibly difficult and sad time.”
Detective Inspector Gary Winter, who has been leading enquiries, said: “I would once again like to thank local residents for their patience while officers have been in the area. Thank you also to those who have assisted with our enquiries so far.
“I continue to urge anyone with information about this incident who has not yet spoken to the Police to contact 101 quoting reference number 0473 of July 11.”
