Man in court over teacher murder
Robert Symons
Robert Symons died of a single stab wound
A man accused of murdering school teacher Robert Symons at his home has been remanded in custody.

Yousef Bouhaddaou, 26, of Notting Hill, west London, appeared before Hendon magistrates on Tuesday, and is next in court at the Old Bailey on 2 November.

He is accused of murdering the father-of-two at his home in Chiswick, west London on 20 October. He also faces a charge of burglary at the same address.

Four other people arrested have been bailed by police until December.

Mr Symons, 45, died after suffering a single stab wound.

He was found by his wife in the hallway and died later at Charing Cross Hospital.

Mr Symons, a former businessman who ran a successful IT consultancy, gave up his career to retrain as a science teacher.

He took his first post in September at Queens Park Community School in Kilburn, north-west London.
