A MAN has appeared in court accused of stabbing the mother of his child to death in a Sheffield street.
Erham Mehmedov, aged 44, is alleged to have stabbed Dimitrina Borisova 16 times in Blackstock Road, Gleadless Valley, near to the John O’Gaunt pub, at around 12noon on Thursday.
The Turkish national, who has lived in Great Britain for five years, was arrested shortly after the incident and charged with murder on Friday night.
Mehmedov, who had a two-year-old child with Ms Borisova, spoke only to confirm his name and date of birth when he appeared at Sheffield Magistrates’ Court on Saturday morning.
Dressed in a black T-shirt and tracksuit bottoms, and with his head bowed, he was composed, as a Turkish interpreter told him he stands accused of pre-planned murder.
The case was sent to Sheffield Crown Court, where the defendant is due to appear this Friday.
Mehmedov, of Blackstock Road, Gleadless Valley, was remanded in custody until that time.
He will only be able to apply for bail when he appears at crown court.
* POLICE arrested a second person in connection with the ongoing murder investigation on Friday. The woman, in her 70s, was quizzed by police at the weekend before being released on bail.
