A MAN accused of deliberately starting a Carlisle property fire “with intent to endanger life” is due to stand trial later this year.
Andrzej Jasinski, 34, faced two charges when he appeared at the city’s crown court in front of Judge James Adkin.
One charge alleges arson with intent to endanger life, while the other alleges arson being reckless as to whether life was endangered.
Both charges arise out of an incident on April 5 and a fire which is said to have occurred in the room of a flat at which Jasinski was living.
He will now stand trial in front of a jury. This is due to be held at the crown court in the week of June 24 and, it is estimated, will last around three days.
In the meantime Jasinski, of Brunton Avenue, Carlisle, was remanded in custody by Judge James Adkin.
