A man accused of the murder of the Irish student Karen Buckley has made a second appearance in court.

Karen (24) went missing in Glasgow earlier this month and her body was found near a farm in Milngavie.

A spokesman for the Crown Office said: “Alexander Pacteau (21), from Glasgow, made a second appearance at Glasgow Sheriff Court today charged with the murder of Karen Buckley, and with attempting to defeat the ends of justice.

“He made no plea or declaration and was fully committed and remanded in custody.

“No further court dates have been set at this time.

“It would be inappropriate to comment further at this stage in proceedings.”
