Claire Webster died in a crash near Oldmeldrum in 1994
A man has appeared in court charged with murdering his wife in Aberdeenshire 15 years ago, as part of a life assurance fraud.
Claire Webster, 32, was killed in a car crash near Oldmeldrum, in 1994.
Her husband, Malcolm Webster, 49, appeared in private at Aberdeen Sheriff Court charged with obtaining life assurance money involving murder.
Mr Webster was committed for further examination and remanded in custody. He is due to appear again next week.
Mr Webster and his wife were both in their Daihatsu 4x4 when it smashed into trees and burst into flames.
Claire, Malcolm Webster's wife of eight months, was trapped in the wreckage but her husband survived.
Grampian Police announced last year that they were re-examining the case.
