A Hitchin man charged with murder has been remanded in custody for a second time after a 25-year-old man died of stab wounds last week.
Eswaran Sinnathurai, aged 24, of Wilshere Crescent, Hitchin, appeared at St Albans Crown Court today, where he did not enter a plea.
His next court appearance has been set for July 30.
At around 4.30am last Tuesday, police responded to reports that a Hitchin man had been seriously injured inside an address in Capswell Court.
Officers and the ambulance service attended the flat where the victim – Katheeskaran Thavarasa, who is better known as Karan – was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.
