A driver accused of mowing down pedestrians in a hit-and-run van rampage has appeared in court accused of murder and 13 counts of attempted murder.
Matthew Tvrdon, 31, was led into Cardiff Magistrates' Court with his hands cuffed behind his back.
He 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 died and several children were injured in the rampage. He will appear at Newport Crown Court on Tuesday.
Tvrdon looked relaxed as he was released from his handcuffs and brought into the courtroom.
Unshaven and wearing a black jumper, he was asked to confirm that he was of no fixed address.
"Unfortunately, at the moment I was between moving out," he told the court in a calm voice.
