Toby Cooke died in hospital four days after the incident
A man has appeared in court charged with murder after the death of a motorist following a fight on the hard shoulder of the M1 in Bedfordshire.
Toby Cooke, 25, of Cutenhoe Road, Luton, died after the fight on 22 May.
Graham Cahill, 43, of Hawthorne Drive, Harrow, appeared at Luton Magistrates' Court charged with his murder.
Mr Cahill, who works in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, was remanded in custody to appear at Luton Crown Court on 13 June.
A post-mortem examination showed the cause of Mr Cooke's death was an injury to the head.
His family and girlfriend Carly paid tribute to him.
They said: "Experiencing a loss such as this is indescribable and not something you can ever prepare yourself for.
"We know his friends, of which he had many, remember Toby as we do; a strong, independent young man who was just beginning his adult life and had just started to figure out what he wanted to do with it."
The statement said Mr Cooke and his girlfriend were planning a trip to Ghana building orphanages and a children's hospital for a local charity.
