Derby fire deaths trial set for February

  • 11-30-2012

The parents of six children who died in a house fire in Derby are due to stand trial for their murders in February.

Mick Philpott, 55, and his wife Mairead, 31, are accused of killing Jade Philpott, 10, and her brothers John, nine, Jack, eight; Jessie, six, and Jayden, five, on 11 May.

Their brother Duwayne, 13, died three days later in hospital.

The couple appeared at Birmingham Crown Court earlier, having denied six counts of murder at a previous hearing.

Paul Mosley, 45, of Cecil Street, Derby, also appeared at the case management hearing, charged with six counts of murder.

He did not enter a plea and is due back in court next month.

The fatal fire broke out at the family's home in Victory Road, Allenton.

The trial is scheduled to start at Nottingham Crown Court on 11 February and is expected to last five to six weeks.
