The victims included taxi driver Hassan Baydoun, 33, Nigel Hellings, 75, Michael Sisois, 57, and 52-year-old Rob Courtney.

He is yet to plead guilty or not guilty and is unlikely to do so on Wednesday, which is a procedural preliminary hearing and part of the complex legal process involved in serious criminal charges.
