Body in bath death - couple to face murder trial

A MAN and woman accused of the murder of a 15-year-old lad who was found dead in a bath, were today at the Old Bailey remanded in custody for three months.

Eric Baikubi and Magalie Bamu, both 27 and of Hathaway Crescent, Manor Park, are set to stand trial on March 8.

They were arrested at the flat on Christmas Day.

Ambulance crews were called to an eighth floor flat in the block at 12.15pm.

A post mortem failed to determine the teenager’s exact cause of death and so more tests are being carried out on the teenager’s body.
