Cardiff Hit-And-Runs: Man Remanded In Custody
A man charged with the murder of a mother-of-three during a series of hit-and-runs in Cardiff has been remanded in custody.
Matthew Tvrdon - who has also been charged with 13 counts of attempted murder, four counts of assault and dangerous driving - was detained after attending a brief hearing at Cardiff Magistrates' Court.
Tvrdon, 31, is accused of deliberately running down parents and young children in the Ely and Leckwith areas of Cardiff on Friday afternoon.
Mother-of-three Karina Menzies, 31, died and several children were injured.
Six people, including three children, remained in hospital. Two adults were still in intensive care.
At the hearing, Tvrdon confirmed that he was of no fixed address.
District Judge Bodfan Jenkins remanded Tvrdon in custody. The suspect will appear at Newport Crown Court later via videolink.
Senior investigating officer Detective Superintendent Paul Hurley earlier said: "South Wales Police has been overwhelmed by the support we have received from the community.
"We wish to express our sincere thanks to the many people who have come forward to give information, provide witness accounts, and offer both CCTV and mobile phone footage of Friday's traumatic and tragic events.
"While a man has been charged, the investigation is still very much ongoing and we still appeal for anyone with information to contact the incident room at Cardiff Central Police Station."
Hundreds of people gathered to share their grief at the church and prayer service on Sunday.
The raw emotion in the Welsh capital was evident as 200 people held a minute's silence for Ms Menzies.
