Man in court over Derby house fire deaths
Tuesday 06 November 2012
A 45-year-old man was remanded in custody today after appearing in court charged with murdering six siblings who died after a fire ripped through their home as they slept.
Paul Barry Mosley appeared at Derby Magistrates' Court charged with the murders of Jade Philpott, 10, and her brothers John, nine, Jack, eight, Jesse, six, Jayden, five, and 13-year-old Duwayne.
Mosley, of Cecil Street, Derby, was remanded to appear at Nottingham Crown Court for a preliminary hearing on Thursday.
He will appear alongside the children's parents Mick and Mairead Philpott, who have also been charged with the murders.
The children died after the blaze engulfed their semi-detached house in Victory Road, Allenton, Derby, on May 11.
Mr and Mrs Philpott, who are both in custody and did not attend their children's funerals in June, are expected to enter pleas to each of the six murder charges at Nottingham Crown Court on Thursday.
Meanwhile, a 49-year-old man arrested on Monday has been released without charge, Derbyshire Police said.
