A MAN has appeared in court charged with murdering his daughter.

Faleh Ghazi Albasman did not enter a plea during the five minute hearing at Bournemouth Magistrates' Court.

He will appear at Winchester Crown Court for a preliminary hearing on Tuesday, April 8 at 10am.

The 58-year-old is accused of the murder of daughter Mashael, 25, on Sunday, March 30.

He was flanked by two guards, both of whom faced him throughout the short hearing, and spoke in a faint voice through an interpreter.

Mashael is a Kuwaiti student who was learning English in Bournemouth.

A post-mortem report revealed she died of multiple stab wounds.
