A man has been charged with murder following the death of an Aberdeen woman.
Neomi Smith, 23, from Mastrick, was found dead in a property in Swan Street in Brechin at 1.30pm on Sunday.
Officers cordoned off parts of the town centre as they carried out investigations into the incident.
The road between City Road and the High Street was blocked off, while officers stood guard at a lane leading off High Street.
Detective Inspector Ross Fitzgerald of the Major Investigation Team said: “Firstly, our thoughts are with Neomi’s family and friends at this difficult time. They have requested that their privacy is respected while they come to terms with Neomi’s death.
‘I would like to stress that we are treating this incident as isolated and I would like to thank residents in the local community for their patience whilst we progress with this investigation.”
