A 20-year-old man today admitted killing his younger brother.
Daniel Taylor pleaded guilty to the manslaughter of nine-year-old Jack Taylor but denied a charge of murder.
Jack was stabbed at a house on Rookes Avenue, Bradford, in February.
The young boy was taken to Bradford Royal Infirmary but died as a result of multiple stab wounds.
Taylor, of Richardson Avenue, Bradford, also denied wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm after his 18-year-old sister Rachel was injured in the attack.
He entered the pleas at Bradford Crown Court today.
Simon Bourne-Arton QC, prosecuting, said the Crown did not accept Taylor's guilty plea to manslaughter and the case was adjourned for a further hearing at Leeds Crown Court at a later date.
A preliminary trial date is fixed for September 13.
Taylor appeared in the dock today wearing a grey sweatshirt, grey tracksuit bottoms and with short, blond hair.
He repeatedly looked across at family members, who sat in the public gallery to listen to the proceedings, and spoke only to confirm his name, enter his pleas and query the date of the next hearing.Reuse content
