Alistair Milroy, 42, of Galloway Road, is believed to have suffered fatal stab wounds to his body after a disturbance at a house in Annathill, near Coatbridge, at 7.40pm.
Residents watched as ambulance crews battled to save the East Kilbride man as he lay in a pool of blood in the front garden.
He was rushed to Glasgow Royal Infirmary but died a short time later.
His family have been informed.
Police remained at the crime scene yesterday which was cordoned off.
Businessman John Bingham, 47, appeared at Airdrie Sheriff Court yesterday (Tuesday) in connection with his death.
He made no plea or declaration and was commited for further examination.
Bingham was remanded in custody and is explected to make a second appearance at the court next week.
As police began their inquiries, neighbours in the quiet village spoke of their shock at the horror incident in Annathill Gardens.
One woman told our sister paper the Daily Record: I heard screams for help coming from the house.
I rushed out and saw a man lying in pool of blood in the garden and I called an ambulance... he was in a bad way.
Bingham is a director of Clydeforth Security Services, Hummer UK Limited and Lamborghini Limited.
