The murder of Anuj Bidve, an Indian student who was gunned down at point blank range in northern England, has shocked the United Kingdom.

Kiaran Stapleton, the 20-year-old man  charged with the murder, gave his name as “Psycho” Stapleton in his first court appearance.

Even so, police say the investigation is not yet over. Earlier, an award of $77,500 had been announced for evidence used to secure a conviction.

For Bidve’s parents, it has been a long and painful journey to the UK to bring home the body of their lost son.
