Two men have appeared in court this morning each facing a charge of murder and a charge of attempted murder following an attack in Northampton last week.

Vladlens Ignashko, aged 39, and Igors Kolkunovs, 27, both from Cliftonville Court, appeared at Northampton Magistrates’ Court today charged with the murder of Olegs Sergejevs.

Both defendants were also charged with the attempted murder of another man,

Sergejevs died in hospital hours after being attacked on Thursday (April 9) near his home, also in Cliftonville Court.

A second man, aged 32, suffered serious injuries from which he is still recovering.

Ignashko and Kolkunovs spoke only to confirm their names, dates of birth and address, with the help of a Russian interpreter.

There were no applications for bail and both men were remanded in custody.

They will appear at Northampton Crown Court later this week.
