A woman who died at an Aberdeen home on Monday has been described as a "fun loving person".

Officers have named her as Jacqueline Kerr, who lived on the street with her two dogs. 

Police were called to an address on Sunnyside Road on Monday, where Ms Kerr's body was discovered. 

A man was arrested outside Scotstown Primary School in Bridge of Don in relation to the incident later that day.

A 43-year-old man is due to appear at Aberdeen Sheriff Court today in connection with her death. 

In a statement, the family of Jacqueline said: "Jacqueline was a fun loving person. She loved her two dogs and loved going to the gym.

"She was a great sister, brilliant family member and a dear friend to many.

"She will be sorely missed by all who knew her.

"We respectfully ask for privacy at this time while we come to terms with our loss." 

Detective Inspector Gary Winer, of Police Scotland's Major Investigation Team, said: "My thoughts are with the family and friends of Jacqueline at this extremely difficult time. 

"There is no doubt that this incident will cause concern within the community, however I would like to stress that we are treating this as an isolated and contained matter.

"I would also like to thank members of the public for their patience while this incident is being investigated. 

"A visible police presence will remain in the area as we continue with our enquiries and I would, again, ask for the public's patience." 

Anyone who may have information relevant to the investigation is urged to contact 101 quoting reference number 1024 of 16 January 2023.
