Man accused of killing Harlesden mother-of-two to face trial in January
Court hears victim was knifed 15 times in Tottenham street
A man accused of stabbing his estranged partner to death in the street denied the murder at the Old Bailey today (Thursday).
Nathaniel Brown, 26, is said to have knifed Zandra Maxwell-Nelson, of Nicoll Road, Harlesden, 15 times during the attack in Tottenham, on April 20 at around 6pm.
The 24-year-old, a former pupil of John Kelly Girl’s school (now Crest Academy) in Neasden, tried to find safety in a parked car but suffered fatal injuries.
The mother-of-two, who was studying for a degree at Thames Valley University in Ealing, was pronounced dead in hospital two hours later.
Her family were present in court as Brown appeared in the dock for a plea and case management hearing.
Brown pleaded not guilty to the single charge of murder.
