Elizabeth Watson: Man appears in court charged with ‘much-loved’ grandmother’s murder in Peterhead | UK News

A man has appeared in court charged with the murder of a “much-loved” grandmother in Aberdeenshire.

Officers were called to a house in Catto Drive, Peterhead, on Tuesday evening following a report of concern for Elizabeth Watson.

The 58-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene.

Jonathon Divers, 30, was arrested and charged in connection with Ms Watson’s death.

Divers, of Peterhead, made no plea to the single murder charge when he appeared at Peterhead Sheriff Court on Friday.

He was remanded in custody and is expected back in the dock within the next eight days.

In a statement released through Police Scotland earlier this week, Ms Watson’s family said: “Elizabeth was a much-loved mum and grandma, she will be missed dearly by many.”
