Suspect in Nottingham attack remanded in custody



A man has been remanded in custody after being charged with murdering three people following a series of attacks in Nottingham.

Valdo Calocane is accused of stabbing to death university students Grace O’Malley-Kumar and Barnaby Webber, both aged 19, and 65-year-old school caretaker Ian Coates in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

He is due to appear at Nottingham Crown court on Tuesday 20th June.

The 31-year-old, of no fixed address, has also been charged with attempted murder after three people were injured, one critically, when they were hit by a van.

Police said on Thursday the suspect was a former University of Nottingham student.

Nottinghamshire Police Chief Constable Kate Meynell said: “This has been an incredibly sad time for our city and county, and we stand united with our communities as we come to terms with the effects of what has happened.

“We are keenly aware of the deep emotion being felt surrounding these tragic events and the high level of interest, not only in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire but also across the whole country.

“However, posting prejudicial information online about an active case could amount to contempt of court and, in the most serious cases, have the potential to cause the collapse of a trial.”
