Sturrock, who was 29 weeks pregnant, was found dead at the scene, and a hunt for Yates was launched.
Police have said they are not seeking anyone else in connection with Sturrock's death.
Reports will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal in due course.
Detective Superintendent Nicola Kilbane has said: “Our thoughts are with Marelle’s family and friends, along with everyone affected by this tragedy.
“We are providing her family with specialist support at this incredibly difficult time.”
Officials from the Police Investigations and Review Commissioner (PIRC) are said to be investigating whether Sturrock's life could have been saved before she was killed.
Police Scotland said they could not comment on the PIRC investigation.
