Nathan Massey, 22, of Findlay Street, Leigh, stood before Wigan justices to plead not guilty to charges that he said he would torch Lyndsey and David Swann’s home and burgled an address in Sycamore Avenue, Beech Hill, on July 7 last year.

He was remanded on conditional bail until a first appearance before a Bolton Crown Court judge on August 4.
