London sisters killed in 'unprovoked and random attack' in park
Two London sisters were murdered in an "unprovoked and random attack" by a teenager in a park, a court has heard.
Nicole Smallman, 27, and Bibaa Henry, 46, were allegedly stabbed to death by 18-year-old Danyal Hussein in Fryent Country Park, a short walk from Wembley Stadium last month.
A prosecutor told the court that Hussein had committed an "unprovoked and random attack".
Hussein, who appeared via video link, was remanded in custody at Wandsworth Prison.
Ms Smallman and Ms Henry had met with friends earlier in the evening to celebrate the latter's birthday.
A photo released by police showed Ms Henry dancing with fairy lights. The picture had been taken by Ms Smallman.
Hussein was arrested several weeks after the fatal stabbings at his home in Blackheath, on the other side of London.
He has been charged with two counts of murder and possession of an offensive weapon.
Hussein will make his next court appearance on September 21, when a trial date will be set.
He did not enter a plea.
