A MAN has appeared in court charged with murdering a mum who was stabbed to death in front of her children.
Obert Moyo, 45, appeared at Bolton Magistrates’ Court today charged with murder.
He is also accused of possession of an offensive weapon, named in the charge as a “skewer”.
Moyo was remanded into custody to next appear at Manchester Crown Court on Wednesday.
Screams were heard as Perseverance, known as Percy to her friends, raced out of the house in a desperate bid to escape.
She collapsed in the street after suffering a single stab wound to the chest and later died in hospital.
Paying tribute, Perseverance’s family said: “It is with immense pain that we say goodbye to Perseverance Ncube, also known as Percy to her loved ones.
“She was a loving and devoted mother who lived for her children, family, and friends.
“Percy was an active member of her church and had created a beautiful community for herself and her children.
“Percy had just celebrated her 35th birthday in October, and her passing has left us with an immeasurable sense of loss.
“Our focus now is on supporting her children as they continue their journey without their mother.
“With love from Percy’s family.”
