Student Murder: 'Psycho' Suspect Remanded

Wasif Chudhary

A man charged with the murder of an Indian student in the Salford area of Manchester on Boxing Day has told a court his name is "Psycho Stapleton".

The 20-year-old from the Ordsall estate in Salford was asked again in the short hearing at Manchester City Magistrates court: "Are you Kiaran Stapleton?" The defendant replied: "No. Psycho Stapleton."
He was remanded in custody for 24 hours and will appear later this week at Manchester Crown Court.
Anuj Bidve, 23, died from a single gunshot wound to the head in the apparently motiveless attack in the early hours of December 26.
Mr Bidve, who was studying for a micro-electronics postgraduate qualification at Lancaster University, was described by tutors as "an outstanding applicant at the very beginning of a promising career".
He was with a group of fellow Indian students visiting Manchester for Christmas when he was murdered.
Two officers from Greater Manchester Police have flown to India to meet Mr Bidve's family.
