A 25 year old man has been arrested and charged by police in relation to the death of a woman in Union Terrace.
A police Scotland statement said: “Police Scotland can confirm that a 25 year old man has been arrested and charged in connection with this matter.
“A report will be sent to the Procurator Fiscal.”
The woman – who police believe was involved in prostitution – was found at a property on Union Terrace on Friday afternoon.
It is thought she was 30, but she has not yet been named.
A large-scale inquiry was launched, which involved detectives and forensic officers scouring the flat for evidence, checking CCTV footage, and door-to-door inquiries with neighbours.
Yesterday, police remained at the flat, with one officer standing guard at the entrance to the block.
A police incident van has been parked on the busy street since the woman was found, with a car stationed at the rear of the property on Diamond Street.
It is understood the woman had been renting the flat and only been there for three days.
Police have also been working with support groups nationally and looking to get advice to people involved in prostitution to help them stay safe.
The 25 year old man will appear at Aberdeen Sheriff Court tomorrow (Wednesday February 17.)
