A man and a teenager have appeared in court charged with killing a pizza delivery driver in Sheffield.

Shamraze Khan, 26, and Kasim Ahmed, 17, are alleged to have murdered Thavisha Lakindu Peiris on 27 October.

Mr Peiris, 25, was found dead in his car in Southey Crescent, Sheffield. He had been stabbed in the chest.

Khan, of Southey Crescent, and Ahmed, of Main Road, Darnall, did not enter a plea at Sheffield Crown Court and were remanded in custody until 22 April.

An order banning the publication of Ahmed's name was lifted by Mr Justice Globe in December.
