A MAN who was allegedly stabbed to death in a Bournemouth address has been named, while the man accused of his murder has appeared in court.

Fabio Menegon, died at the scene following an alleged incident in Eldon Place, Westbourne, on Friday, June 19.

Giuseppe Vittorio Zerega, aged 31 and of Bournemouth, has been charged with his murder as well as two counts of attempted murder.

Police were called by the ambulance service at 2.20am on June 19 in relation to reports that a 45-year-old man had sustained stab wounds at a property.

He died at the scene and today he has been named by detectives as Mr Menegon.

A post-mortem examination concluded that he died of stab wounds to the head and trunk.

A woman aged in her 40s and a teenage boy, both from Bournemouth, were taken to hospital for treatment to injuries that were not life-threatening.

Today, Zerega was charged with murder and two counts of attempted murder and appeared via video link at Poole Magistrates' Court. He is next due to appear at Winchester Crown Court on Friday, August 14.

DCI Jez Noyce, of Dorset Police’s major crime investigation team, said: “Our thoughts remain with Mr Menegon's family and all of those affected by this terrible incident. We are keeping them fully updated and they are being supported by specially-trained officers.

“Following a detailed investigation we have consulted with the Crown Prosecution Service, which authorised the charges.

“It is important to stress – as is typical in such circumstances – that it would be entirely inappropriate for Dorset Police to comment further ahead of the trial. It is vital that the justice system is allowed to follow its course.

“I would like to remind the public that this matter is now the subject of active court proceedings and the individual charged in connection with this investigation has a right to a fair trial. It is important that there should be no commentary or sharing of information online or on social media that could potentially prejudice these proceedings.”
