The family of Wick woman Marelle Sturrock, who was killed in Glasgow last week, have said they are devastated and in total shock.

Marelle (35) was found dead at a property on Jura Street, Glasgow, around 8.40am on Tuesday, April 25. She was 29 weeks pregnant.

Her parents, Colin and Lorna Sturrock, released a statement through Police Scotland on Tuesday.

“We are devastated following the deaths of our daughter, Marelle, and soon to be grandson, Jayden Sturrock," they said.

“Marelle was the happiest person you could ever meet and was always looking to help others the best she could.

“Marelle and her partner doted on each other, and this incident has come as a total shock to all who knew her.

"We would like to thank family and friends, colleagues at Sandwood Primary School, Police Scotland officers, both in the Highlands and Glasgow, for their efforts and comforting support following our tragic event.

“Our family would like everyone, including the press, to respect our privacy at this very sad and difficult time."
