A PLEA and case management hearing for the father of a Kuwaiti student found stabbed to death has been adjourned.

Faleh Ghazi Albasman, 58, was due to appear at Winchester Crown Court this afternoon to enter a plea to a single count of murder. However, he was not produced at the hearing following a decision made by doctors at the secure hospital in which he is currently incarcerated.

He will next appear before the court on August 7.

The body of his daughter, 25-year-old Mashael, was found at a flat in St Michael’s Road, Bournemouth, on March 30 this year. She died of multiple stab wounds, a post-mortem report revealed. She had arrived in Bournemouth in November last year.
