A murder investigation was launched after a woman died three days after being seriously injured.

Police have been called to reports of a disturbance at a block of flats on John Street in the town of Argyll and Bute on July 23.

Mairi Doherty, 41, suffered serious injuries and was taken to Glasgow’s Queen Elizabeth University Hospital – where she died on Tuesday.

Police Scotland said two people, a 43-year-old man and a 40-year-old woman, had already appeared in court after being arrested and charged in connection with the disorder.

Officers have now opened a murder investigation and have urged anyone who may have seen anything to contact them on 101 quoting incident number 0304 from July 23.

Detective Chief Inspector Stuart Grainger, of the force’s main investigative team, said: “Our thoughts are with Mairi’s family.

“This is a very difficult time for them and I want to reassure them and the wider community that we are doing everything we can to clarify the full circumstances of what has happened.”

Mr Grainger added: “At the time of this incident there were a number of people in and around the block of flats and I would urge anyone who has not spoken to officers to come forward.

“If you have seen anything please contact us as even a little bit of information can help with our enquiries. Also, if you have any private CCTV footage that might be helpful, please let us know.”
