The son of a woman found dead by firefighters is due to stand trial after he denied her murder.

Peter Holboll, 44, appeared at the Old Bailey on Friday accused of killing Tamara Holboll, 67.

Her body was found at her home in Lawford Road, Kentish Town, on Friday May 9 by fire crews tackling a blaze at the flat.

A post-mortem gave the cause of death as multiple stab wounds.

Holboll, of Tottenham Street, Fitzrovia, faces two further charges of arson and arson with intent to endanger life.

He denied all three charges at the hearing on Friday and will now stand trial on November 3.
