Joshua Cohen, 27, is charged with killing Louise Cohen, 66, and Hannah Cohen, 33, who ran the well-known Beigel Bake in Brick Lane.

The women were pronounced dead at their home in Golders Green Crescent after emergency services arrived at around 8.50pm on Friday, August 11.

Cohen, of Barnet, north London, was arrested in nearby Golders Hill Park the following day.

He appeared at the Old Bailey this morning by video link from custody before Judge Richard Marks QC for a plea and case management hearing.

Wearing a dark tracksuit and trainers, he spoke only to confirm his name and did not enter any pleas.

His trial, which was due to start before Mrs Justice Whipple at the Old Bailey on February 5, was postponed.

Judge Marks set a fresh plea hearing for February 2 and remanded the defendant into custody.
