He has also denied a charge of aggravated burglary, at the same property, namely that he attended with a knife, intending to inflict grievous bodily harm on Mr Lathom, and assaulting Nicola Taylor, on the same occasion.

Sutherman, of Nelson Square, Bolton, entered the pleas during a brief hearing via a video link at Bolton Crown Court.

Recorder of Bolton, Judge Timothy Clayson, adjourned the case for trial until June 4 at the same court and remanded Sutherman in custody.
