Latest update : 2008-07-14

Daniel Sonnex, the second man charged with the brutal murders of two French students in London appeared in court on Monday, from where he was remanded in custody.

A second man charged with the brutal murders of two French students appeared in a London court Monday, where he was remanded in custody.
   
Daniel Sonnex, 23, stands accused of murdering Laurent Bonomo and Gabriel Ferez, who were found bound, stabbed and burnt in a southeast London flat, as well as perverting the course of justice.
   
The bodies of the 23-year-old biochemistry students were found in Bonomo's flat on June 29.
   
At Greenwich Magistrates' Court in south-east London, Sonnex spoke only to confirm his name, address and age.
   
Yvonne Powell, the chairman of the bench, remanded him in custody until October 20, when he is to appear at England's Old Bailey central criminal court in London.
   
Nigel Farmer, 33, unemployed and of no fixed address, appeared in court Thursday charged with murdering the students.
   
He was remanded in custody and is due to appear at the Old Bailey on October 16.
   
The two victims were studying at Imperial College in west London, on an exchange programme from a university in Clermont Ferrand, central France.
   
Several hundred people marched in silence through the northern French city of Amiens on Sunday in memory of Ferez. He came from the region and had studied in the city before moving to Clermont Ferrand.
