It is reported this morning that the woman pulled from the fire at 18 Chalmers Crescent had suffered stab wounds and the deceased male had been 'battered' to death.
The fire related incident yesterday morning took place around 450 yards from the scene of a tragic fire in December in Argyle Park Terrace where 79 year old Berit Mountain died.
The crime scene is part of a small block of flats managed by Viewpoint Housing Association. It is situated in Grange Road just to the north of St Catherine's Argyle Church and the building is somewhat out of character with the houses (as in the picture) traditionally associated with this part of the Sciennes/ Grange area.
Further details of yesterday's events can be found in the Scotsman, which describes the scene as a 'bloodbath', and the Daily Record which places the incident in the context of other violence elsewhere in Scotland over the week-end.
1 pm update: In this afternoon's Evening News they report the police are waiting to interview Ms Methven over the incident and are reportedly poised to launch a murder investigation.
