London: A youth, who described himself as "Psycho Stapleton", accused of murdering Indian student Anuj Bidve in December last year appeared in a British court today. Kiaran Stapleton, 20, from Ordsall, Salford, appeared at the plea and case management hearing at Manchester Crown Court via videolink.

Twenty three-year-old Bidve, a Lancaster University student, was staying with friends in the Manchester area when he was shot in the head at close range on December 26.

Bidve had been studying for a micro-electronics postgraduate qualification at the university since September after completing an electronics degree at Pune University. A further hearing is expected later this year, BBC reported.
