The son of a wealthy art collector has been remanded in custody this week to face charges for the attempted murder of the family’s live-in maid.

Maximillian Bourne, 25, who described himself in court as ‘a nice, very good-looking white boy from Chelsea’, is said to have repeatedly stabbed Joselia Pereira Do Nascimento at the five-bedroom property in Justice Walk, Chelsea on February 25.

Ms Pereira Do Nacimento who spent a week in hospital from injuries suffered to her face and back, although they were not seen to be life-threatening.

IT consultant Bourne was due to enter his plea to a charge of attempted murder at Southwark Crown Court today but the hearing was adjourned until May 15.

Prosecutor David Smith said: ‘I invite the court to arrange a further case management hearing when the defendant can be arraigned.’

Ms Pereira Do Nacimento was allegedly attacked while working as a maid at the property, said to be worth around £20million.

The 18th-century building was once used as a holding place for petty criminals waiting to be sent to Britain’s colonies.

In 2014, MailOnline reported the owners, Graham and Sylvia Bourne, were looking to sell the property for £14.5mn after buying it for £2.8mn in 1998.

Bourne is the son of art dealer and philanthropist Sylvia Bourne and property developer Graham Bourne.
