Prosecuting, Andy Robinson said the case was not suitable to be dealt with at the magistrates court as the allegation involved trying to smother the man with a pillow, and biting into his head.

It is alleged the older man, who suffers with a kidney related illness, suffered injuries to his ribs, head cheek and lip.

The case was committed to Preston Crown Court where he will appear on January 7.

Allen was remanded in custody
