AN inquest opened on a Huddersfield father at the same time his son appeared in court accused of his murder.
Huddersfield Coroner's Court was told that 67-year-old Mr Sana Ullah was found dead on a downstairs bed at the home he shared with his son, Dawood Ahmed, on Wednesday, September 22.
Det Insp Sam Cooke, of Huddersfield CID, said that Mr Ullah, a retired hairdresser, had died from stab wounds to his chest at the house on Bradford Road in Fartown.
He was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics at 9.37pm.
The inquest was adjourned and Mr Ullah's body will now be released to his family who want to take it to Pakistan.
Meanwhile, Mr Ullah's 34-year-old son, Dawood Ahmed appeared at Bradford Crown Court yesterday morning charged with his murder.
Ahmed, a barber, had an application for bail refused by a crown court judge.
The Honorary Recorder of Bradford, Judge Stephen Gullick, remanded Ahmed back into custody and he will next appear at the court on December 13.
The judge told Ahmed, who was assisted by an interpreter, that a provisional trial date had been fixed for January 19.
Ahmed is a divorced father-of-two.
