The dead brother was a couple of years older and had been in poor health for years. The younger one received care allowance for looking after him. Together with cashing the dead man's pension he amassed some £38,000 fraudulently.

The gruesome situation came to light when a group of firefighters went to the flat because of a leaking water pipe. They found a foot sticking out from under a bed and further investigation revealed a badly decomposed body.

They notified the police who arrested the survivor at a nearby hotel.

Alistair Brown 61 subsequently appeared in court. The sheriff did not send him to prison but sentenced him to 240 hours of unpaid work instead. No order was made for repaying the £38,000.
