A 39-year-old man has appeared in court in Scotland charged with murdering his 66-year-old mother.

The dismembered body of Phyllis Dunleavy from Dublin was found in a shallow grave in a nature reserve in the Corstorphine Hill area of Edinburgh on June 6th by a cyclist.

Her son James Dunleavy, who lives in the city, was arrested last night and charged with her death.

No plea or declaration was made on his behalf when he appeared before Edinburgh Sheriff Court this afternoon.

He was remanded in custody to appear again in court next Wednesday, July 17th.

Phyllis Dunleavy's body was identified after a family member in Dublin saw a visual reconstruction of her face last week.
