Mick and Mairead Philpott and Paul Mosley deny manslaughter charges
MICK Philpott, 56, and his 31-year-old wife Mairead have pleaded not guilty to six counts of the manslaughter of their six children.
It is alleged that they were responsible for the deaths of Duwayne Philpott, 13, his 10-year-old sister, Jade, and brothers John, nine, Jack, eight, Jesse, six, and Jayden, five.
The prosecution says the fire at their Victory Road home was started deliberately and was part of a plan to frame Philpott's former mistress, Lisa Willis.
On the morning of the fire, on May 11 last year, Philpott and Ms Willis were due in court over a custody battle with the four children they have together.

The prosecution allege that Philpott was the mastermind behind the scheme and that Mairead Philpott and family friend Paul Mosley were "in" on the plan.
They say forensic evidence, which is yet to be heard, will reveal that both Philpott, Mairead and Mosley, 45, had petrol on their clothing.
Mosley, of Cecil Street, Derby, also denies six charges of manslaughter.
