A TEENAGER has appeared in court charged with the murder of a New Cumnock man in Dalry on Saturday night.

19-year-old Daniel Brown made a short appearence in private at Kilmarnock Sheriff Court this afternoon where he was charged with murder.

He was also charged with assault, vandalism and possession of a knife in a public place.

Brown, of Edinburgh, made no plea and was committed for further examination before being remanded in custody.

He is expected to appear again before the court next week.
