- Tower Hamlets
A 16-year-old has appeared in court, charged with the murder of a young Turkish mother in Hackney earlier this year.
The teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, denies shooting 26-year-old Gulistan Subasi at her home in Homerton.
Subasi was shot in the chest at close range at around 8:30pm on 22 March, after answering the door at her mother’s flat off Kingsmead Way.
The youth, from Willesden, appeared at the Old Bailey today via video link, pleading not guilty to a single charge of murder.
The accused will stand trial in December, alongside alleged accomplice 24-year-old Izak Billy from Kensal Green, who has not entered a plea.
Proceedings are expected to last for two weeks.
