A MAN has appeared in court charged with murder after another man was found dead over the weekend.

Allan Higgins Robertson appeared in private at Glasgow Sheriff Court yesterday charged with murder of a man in Knightswood.

The 48-year-old Glasgow man made no plea or declaration and was remanded in custody.

It comes after a man's body was found in the Kirkton Avenue flats in Knightswood on Sunday afternoon, with police being called around 2.30pm.

Officers attended but the man, who is yet to be identified, was pronounced dead, having sustained fatal injuries.

A police spokeswoman said: "A 48-year-old man has been arrested and has appeared in court in connection with the incident.

"Around 2.30pm on Sunday afternoon police were called to a flat in Kirkton Avenue where the body of a man was found."

Just 15 minutes earlier on the opposite side of the city, Mario Tony Capuano was stabbed to death after opening the door of a house in Barmulloch.

Police say the incidents are not thought to be connected.

However murder detectives now believe they are closing in on the 28-year-old's killer, and say they are following a positive line of enquiry.

Father-of-one Mario was knifed in the neck during the brutal attack on Quarrywood Road, and died from his injuries.

His death came almost a decade after his younger brother Lee Capuano died after taking an ecstasy tablet at the age of 15.

Lee died in November 2008, after falling ill in Shettleston.

The pair's heartbroken mum Carol Gray posted images of her sons on social media, with mourners wishing her support and paying tribute to Mario.

One friend said: "I love u (sic) brother, till we meet again Mario, thoughts are with your family." while another wrote: "So sorry for your loss Carol, can't imagine what your going through. Thinking of you and John."

As previously reported by the Evening Times,Quarrywood road was sealed off on Sunday afternoon while more than a dozen police officers attended the scene.

A section of Robroyston Park, which borders the residential street, was also taped off and the police helicopter had been deployed.

Mario's family had been too upset to speak when they attended the murder site on Sunday night, but told our reporter the "full story will come out" about the attack.

Onlookers told of how there had been several violent incidents in the area in the past, and had raised concerns over safety.

One neighbour said they thought a party had been taking place when the fatal attack happened, while another said they had heard nothing until they discovered police swarming the street.
