A Bury St Edmunds murder suspect has made his appearance at Ipswich Crown Court.

Mourad Belarbi, 43, of Lake Avenue, Bury, did not enter a plea during today’s brief preliminary hearing.

He is charged with murdering Geoffrey Caton, 57, at a property in Cumberland Avenue on Thursday (July 20).

Mr Caton allegedly died as a result of multiple stab wounds.

Judge Martyn Levett told Belabi he would be brought back to the same court on September 18 for a plea hearing.

He was remanded in custody until then.
