A Newtown man will go on trial charged with two counts of blackmail.

Jamie Paul Kirkham, 37, was remanded in custody by Welshpool Magistrates’ Court last week after his bail application was refused.

He is alleged to have blackmailed Patrick Coyle and Katie Jones between November 1, 2016, and April 1, 2017.

Kirkham, of Heol Y Coleg, Vaynor, was denied bail to prevent further offending and interference with witnesses.

He entered no pleas to the charges and will next appear at Mold Crown Court on May 5.
