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