Teen appears in court charged with stabbing his father 34 times

A TEENAGER accused of stabbing his father 34 times has appeared in court.

Daryl Trevers, 18, of Council Houses, Stow Road in Ixworth, near Bury St Edmunds, faces a single charge of attempted murder in relation to an incident in which his father Maxwell Trevers, 41, was allegedly stabbed.

The alleged incident happened at the Trevers’ family home in Ixworth at 6pm on Wednesday.

Appearing before magistrates in Bury yesterday, Trevers, dressed in a dark blue long-sleeve tee shirt, spoke only to confirm his age, date of birth and address.

Clean-shaven, with short dark hair, Trevers waved to two people, believed to be relatives of his, in the public gallery before the hearing ended.
