TWO men arrested in connection with the death of Motherwell dad Tony Dryden have now been charged with murder.

When they first appeared at Airdrie Sheriff Court last week, Azeem Aslam (25) and Ibreham Aslam (22) were accused of attempting to murder the 42-year-old.

Mr Dryden, of Milton Street, Motherwell, died in hospital on March 24, the day after he was allegedly assaulted in Airdrie.

His alleged attackers, both of Glasgow, were back in the dock this week when they made no plea to a charge of murder.

They were committed for trial and remanded in custody.
