Brothers admit supermarket raid
Two brothers have admitted robbery following a hold-up at a supermarket in north Wales.
Kevin Phythian, 26, and Philip Phythian, 18, from Manchester, stole cash and bottles of whisky in the raid on Somerfield in Old Colwyn, Conwy.
Simon Robinson, 38, from Ashton-under-Lyne, denied the robbery in March.
All three denied a charge of aggravated burglary at a house in Colwyn Bay, with intent to inflict grievous bodily harm on Matthew Hardern.
Mr Robinson and Kevin Phythian denied wounding Mr Harden with intent and assaulting his mother Virginia Hardern, while Philip Phythian admitted both charges.
Mr Robinson and Phillip Phythian denied possessing an imitation firearm, a blank firing pistol, with intent to commit robbery. Keith Phythian admitted that charge.
Sitting at Mold Crown Court, Judge John Rogers ruled all three should stand trial in July on the charges that they had denied.
The Phythian brothers were remanded in custody. Mr Robinson was bailed.
The trial is expected to last three days
