A woman found dead in Aberdeen has been described as a “great sister, brilliant family member and a dear friend to many”.
Jacqueline Kerr, 54, will also be “sorely missed by all who knew her,” according to her family.
Police Scotland were called to a property on the city’s Sunnyside Road on Monday morning after receiving a report of a person in distress.
Ms Kerr’s body was discovered within.
A 43-year-old man was later arrested in the Scotstown Road area in connection with the incident and has now been charged with her death.
On Wednesday, he is scheduled to appear in Aberdeen Sheriff Court.
Ms Kerr’s family said in a statement released by police, “Jacqueline was a fun-loving person.
“She loved her two dogs and loved going to the gym.
“She was a great sister, brilliant family member and a dear friend to many. She will be sorely missed by all who knew her.”
A visible police presence will remain in the area as investigating officers continue their enquiries.
‘An isolated matter’
Detective Inspector Gary Winter of Police Scotland’s Major Investigation Team stated: “At this difficult time, my thoughts are with Jacqueline’s family and friends.
“There is no doubt that this incident will cause concern in the community; however, I would like to emphasize that we are treating this as an isolated and contained incident.
“I would also like to thank members of the public for their patience while this incident is being investigated.”
Anyone who believes they may have information relevant to the investigation is asked to call 101.
