A MAN has appeared in court after he was arrested and charged with an alleged serious sexual assault on a tragic mum-of-two.

Police launched a probe after 29-year-old Kirsty Robertson was found dead at her home on Fulshaw Place last month.

A 29-year-old man was later arrested and charged with a serious sexual assault.

The man was released on bail after he made no plea at Ayr Sheriff Court.

Detectives are still carrying out enquiries in relation to the death which is still being treated as unexplained.

A spokesperson for Police Scotland told the Advertiser: “Police can confirm that a 29-year-old man has been arrested in connection with a serious sexual assault of a 29-year-old woman in Ayr.”
