A Woman Found her brother stabbed to death and their mother

A woman found her brother dead in a hallway and their mother tied up with tape nearby after a mystery caller directed her to the scene, a court has heard.

Suvenca Martis, 31, is charged with murdering Richard Obi, 25, whose body was found by his sister on the Rockingham Estate, Elephant and Castle, on November 17.

The Old Bailey heard Mr Obi’s sister travelled there with a friend after receiving a call from an unknown number telling her to attend the address.

Dutch national Martis appeared via video-link from custody and spoke only to confirm her details.
