Marcel Crihan, 34, of Hickling Road, Ilford, appeared at Snaresbrook Crown Court for the eighth day, accused of murdering removal man Florin Onea, 49, of the same address, following a “fracas” on Saturday, October 17.

The trial comes after Mr Onea was found with a stab wound to the chest when police were called to reports of a disturbance. He died nine days later.

Jurors have heard evidence from the victim’s wife, police officers, a neighbour who witnessed the disturbance and Mr Crihan himself.

Mr Crihan denies the charges.
