TWIN brothers accused of battering a disabled man to death in his own home were ordered to stand trial at the Old Bailey in March last Monday.

James and Stuart Head, 33, allegedly murdered 54-year-old Nigel Stemp in Orpington on April 17 last year.

The victim's body was discovered on fire on a bed at Headley House, Longbury Drive. He had suffered multiple head injuries.

The balding Head brothers appeared in court for a brief plea and case management hearing.

They both stood in the dock to plead not guilty to a single charge of murder.

Judge Giles Forrester said the four-week trial would take place on March 3 this year. James Head, of Curtis Mill Way, Orpington, and Stuart Head, of Glendower Crescent, Orpington, were remanded in custody.
