A 21-year-old man has appeared in court charged with murdering flower seller Tony Eastlake.
Tony, 55, who was known as the “flower man of Islington” by customers and his local community, was fatally stabbed close to his stall in Essex Road just before 5.30pm on Saturday.
The defendant James Peppiatt, of Elmore Street, De Beauvoir, appeared briefly at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court this morning (June 3), a court official said.
The case was sent to the Old Bailey where Mr Peppiatt is next due to appear on Monday, the court official said.
A 48-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender and perverting the course of justice yesterday (June 2).
