Brian Low: Suspect David Campbell in court accused of murder after dog walker fatally shot

A 75-year-old man has appeared in court charged with the murder of a dog walker who was shot more than three months ago.

Brian Low, 65, was gunned down on the morning of Saturday 17 February while walking his black Labrador on a remote track in the Pitilie area on the outskirts of Aberfeldy, Perthshire.

Suspect David Campbell, 75, was arrested and charged in connection with Mr Low's death and appeared at Dundee Sheriff Court on Monday.

Campbell, of Perth and Kinross, has been accused of murder and attempting to defeat the ends of justice.

He made no plea to the two charges and was remanded in custody.

Campbell is due back in the dock within the next eight days.

Following the incident in February, Mr Low's dog was found safe and well by his side.

The death was initially treated as non-suspicious and medical-related until concerns were raised days later.

A two-doctor post-mortem eventually took place on Friday 23 February, which confirmed he had been shot.

A murder investigation was subsequently launched, with Mr Low's family notified the following day.

Officers who failed to spot that Mr Low had been shot could face a misconduct inquiry, a former senior detective told Sky News in April.

Police Scotland previously warned the case remains active for the purposes of the Contempt of Court Act 1981 - and advised members of the public to "exercise caution" if discussing it on social media.
