A man faces trial accused of murder after pulling up outside a police station with a body in the car.
Sukhwinder Singh was arrested after the body of Harish Kumar, who was 39, was found in the front passenger seat of a BMW on 10 August.
The vehicle had been parked outside West Bromwich police station.
Police said the victim, from Willenhall, died from a stab wound to the chest.
Singh, 40, appeared for a brief hearing at Wolverhampton Crown Court today.
He followed proceedings with the help of a Punjabi interpreter, and spoke only to confirm his name and that he understood what was being said.
A provisional trial date was set for January 2018, subject to any further reports.
Singh was remanded in custody until October, when he will appear back at the city court.
Meanwhile, the victim's family have paid tribute to "a great, yet very humble man".
