A man is due to appear in court via video link this morning in connection to a stabbing in Ilford.

Marcel Criahan, of Hickling Road, Ilford, was arrested on October 17 in connection to an incident on the same street.

The 34-year-old was charged with GBH with intent the following day, and appeared at Barkingside Magistrates Court on October 19.

The court appearance at Snaresbrook Crown Court comes after police found Florin Onea, 49, also of Hickling Road, with a stab wound.

A murder investigation was launched after he died on Monday, last week.
