A man accused of burgling a Yeovil home before attempting to set it alight appeared in court on Monday.

Ryan Cook, 28, appeared at Taunton Crown Court via video link charged with burglary with intent to steal at a property on Sandlewood Close.

Cook, of Kings Crescent, Sherborne, also faces a charge of attempted arson with intent to endanger life.

The case was adjourned last month, according to Crown Prosecution Service and Avon and Somerset Police spokesmen, so Cook could appear with co-defendant Darren Fraser Green, 36, of Swallowcliffe Gardens, Yeovil.

Green appeared in the dock before Somerset Magistrates, sitting at Yeovil, in January.

He was charged that on October 7 last year, jointly with Ryan Cook, he entered as a trespasser a property in Sandlewood Close, Yeovil, and stole personal effects of an unknown value.

Green pleaded not guilty to the charge and the magistrates refused to accept jurisdiction for the case ordering the defendant to be sent to Taunton Crown Court.

A spokeswoman for Taunton Crown Court said on Monday the prosecution requested the pair appear together at the next hearing on March 10.
