Man remanded over hotel killings

A hotel receptionist has appeared at the Old Bailey accused of killing two of his work colleagues.

Attila Ban, 31, was charged with murdering Alice Adams and Tibor Vass, both 20, at the staff accommodation where he lived in New Road, Harlington, west London.

All three worked as receptionists at the Radisson Edwardian hotel near Heathrow Airport.

Ban, who was recently given an employee of the month award, and fellow Hungarian Mr Vass had worked at the hotel for some time.

Miss Adams, of Iver Heath, Bucks, had recently joined the staff.

The bodies of the two victims were found with multiple stab wounds after they failed to turn up for work last Wednesday.

Ban, who was found at the flat in the bottom of a divan bed two days later, was treated for wrist and neck injuries at a hospital before being arrested.

Ban appeared in court by videolink and was still bandaged on his arms and neck.

He was remanded in custody for a plea and case management hearing on November 18. No bail application was made.

Miss Adams's mother Caroline, said in a statement after her daughter's death: "Alice touched the hearts of everyone she ever met. Her capacity to spread love was unprecedented and her spirit will live on forever."
