Landlord denies manslaughter after house fire kills two toddlers

A landlord has pleaded not guilty to gross negligence manslaughter after a house fire in Huddersfield last year tragically claimed the lives of two young children.

Kamal Qumar Bains was charged last month following an 18-month investigation into the fatal blaze in Alder Street on 20 February last year, which killed Logan Taylor, aged three, and his two-year old brother Jake. 

Bains, 50, of Stableford Gardens, Birkby, is accused of not installing working smoke alarms in the property, but he entered a not guilty plea when he appeared at Leeds Crown Court yesterday. 


A trial has been scheduled to get underway in July next year.
