The first image has emerged of a Truro man who died following an alleged murder.
Emergency services were called on Friday evening (September 28) to reports of a domestic incident in Bugle, near St Austell.
It was reported that a man, 35-year-old James Field from Truro, had sustained a stab wound.
Despite the best efforts of members of the public and the emergency services, he died at Truro’s Royal Cornwall Hospital.
Lindsey Gabriel, 31, from Bugle, was subsequently arrested and charged with murder.
Mr Field lived in Truro at the time of his death but was originally from Torpoint in south east Cornwall, where he attended the town’s community school, according to his Facebook page.
It said that he went on to study at Cornwall College in Pool, before working for Persimmon Homes, although he was no longer employed by the developer at the time of his death.
On Monday morning (October 1), Gabriel appeared at Truro Magistrates’ Court where it was heard that the allegation of murder was too serious to be heard before the magistrates and should be referred up to the crown court for consideration.
Gabriel, dressed in the prison regulation grey tracksuit and with dyed blue hair, appeared via video-link from HMP Eastwood Park.

A distressed looking Gabriel was denied bail and a further hearing was listed for October 19 at Plymouth Crown Court.
It is thought that she will enter a plea at her next court date. Should she plead not guilty a trial has been mooted for next March.
