A man has denied killing a woman who fell from the fifth floor of a tower block.

Nicholas Conning, 45, also known as Nicholas Shepherd, made a brief appearance at the High Court in Edinburgh and was sent for trial in February next year.

He is accused of the culpable homicide of Jennifer Findlay, 46, at Elders Court, Dundee, on 12 July. It is alleged he locked the door of a fifth floor flat, preventing her escape, and struck her and caused her to fall from a window to the ground.
