A man has been charged with a double murder in Golders Green after two members of a well-known bakery-owning family were found stabbed to death in their home.

Joshua Cohen, 27, has been charged with murdering his mother and sister, who were found dead on Friday night. He was arrested in Golders Hill Park on Saturday.

Leah Cohen, 66, and Hannah Cohen, 33, were found stabbed at the house on Golders Green Crescent. The family own Bagel Bake, a popular 24-hour bakery on Brick Lane known for its salt beef bagels.

He was remanded in custody to appear at Hendon Magistrates Court on Monday.”
