A 22-year-old Watford man accused of murdering his father did not enter a plea when he appeared in court recently, as he has not been seen by a psychiatrist.
Husnein Amjad was charged with the murder of his father, Amjad Hussain, aged 52, after he was found with serious injuries by the police inside his home in Fuller Road, Watford just after 6pm on the evening of Thursday, October 28, 2021.
Paramedics and the air ambulance were called, but he unfortunately died at the scene.
During a hearing on December 8, prosecutor Wayne Cleaver said the cause of death was brain trauma.
Husnein’s lawyer asked for the hearing to be adjourned because his client’s mental health has not yet been assessed.
Paramjit Ahluwalia, defending, said a psychiatrist is due to see Husnein Amjad next month.
Judge Michael Kay QC adjourned the case until February 3, when a plea is likely to be entered.
He remanded Husnein Amjad, who is being held at Wormwood Scrubs, in custody.
