He will be in court again in April
A man charged with the murder of lecturer Daniel Young did not make an appearance when he was due to face the Old Bailey yesterday (February 1).
Mark Loveridge, aged 37, of Borough Road, Mitcham, was due to appear via video link from Belmarsh Prison.
As well as the murder of Mr Young, he was also charged with causing grievous bodily harm after an earlier incident in Lewis Road, Mitcham, where Kamil Bulat, 23, suffered stab wounds to his buttocks. He suffered non-life threatening injuries.
Police had been called by the London Ambulance Service to reports of an injured man at 8.07am on Tuesday January 19. An air ambulance attended the scene, but Mr Young (pictured below) was pronounced dead.
His last moments were seen on CCTV images showing as he walked to Morden tube station on the way to work.
He was heading for his second day in a new job as a teaching fellow at Coventry University's London campus. He previously been the General Manager of the Antoinette Hotel in Wimbledon Broadway for many years.
Monday's Old Bailey hearing continued without Loveridge, and he will appear at the Old Bailey on April 14 to make a plea. A trial has been scheduled to start on July 25, and he will remain in custody.
