James 'Pancake' Taylor in court over Liverpool stabbing

A man extradited from the Netherlands to the UK over a knife attack on a man in Liverpool has appeared in court.

James "Pancake" Taylor, 34, has been wanted by police since Lee Siner, aged 26, was stabbed at Kimos restaurant on Myrtle Street on 1 October 2010.

Mr Taylor is charged with inflicting grievous bodily harm without intent and wounding with intent.

He was remanded in custody by Liverpool magistrates until 16 August when he is due before the city's crown court.

Mr Taylor is also charged with possession of an offensive weapon.

Dave Allen, from the Serious Organised Crime Agency, said armed officers arrested Taylor as he left a gym in Amsterdam to cycle home on 22 July.

In December 2011, Anthony Richardson, 34, from Liverpool, was sentenced to eight years and four months in prison at Liverpool Crown Court for wounding with intent in relation to the attack on Mr Siner.
