Sean Maurice from Bromley, in southeast London, allegedly stabbed his dad, Paul Maurice, a total of 22 times.

A plea hearing has been set for 6 December, and he has been remanded in custody.

Judge John Hillen, presiding over the case, said it was difficult to give a provisional trial date before the next hearing due to the “considerable backlog”.
