An unemployed man has been charged with the murder of a London graphic designer.
Adrian Theophane appeared at Marylebone Magistrates Court on Monday charged with the murder of Salim Ahmed, a designer at north London group Graphic & Print Solutions.
Theophane has been remanded in custody for review and will appear again on 19 August.
Neither the police nor the court will comment on the circumstances surrounding the incident or the cause of death.
Salim Ahmed, who was 27 years old and married, had recently joined Graphic & Print Solutions.
Ian Hounslow, general manager at the consultancy says: “While he only worked with us for a short time it was clear he was dedicated to his work and was a valuable member of our team. The whole company is deeply shocked and saddened by the tragic news.”
Ahmed received an HND in graphic design from Chelsea School of Art in 1988 and attained a BA in graphic design from De Montfort University, where he studied from 1991-93. Prior to working at Graphic & Print Solutions Ahmed was at Pads.
