Sabina Nessa: Man, 36, appears in court charged with teacher’s murder

A man has been remanded in custody after appearing in court charged with the murder of primary school teacher Sabina Nessa.

Koci Selamaj, 36, from Eastbourne, East Sussex, was charged on Monday with the murder of the 28-year-old in southeast London on 17 September.

Ms Nessa was killed as she walked through Cator Park in Kidbrooke, south east London, on her way to meet a friend at a pub near her home.

Her body was found nearly 24 hours later covered with leaves near a community centre in the park.

Selamaj appeared before Willesden Magistrates’ Court this morning after being arrested in Eastbourne in the early hours of Sunday.

After being asked for an indication of plea by District Judge Dennis Brennan, Selamaj’s solicitor Aidan Harvey said the 36-year-old intended to plead not guilty.

Selamaj is due to appear at the Old Bailey on Thursday and will be asked to enter a plea at the same court on October 26.

He was remanded into custody.
