A teenager has admitted killing his father but denied trying to kill his mother at their home in Lancashire.

Neil Ryan, 46, was found dead at the house on Heys Close, Blackburn, on 7 October last year. Deborah Ryan, 41, was taken to hospital with stab wounds.

Jordan Ryan, 19, who is being held at a psychiatric unit, was charged with murdering his father but admitted manslaughter at Preston Crown Court.

He denied the attempted murder of his mother and will be sentenced in July.
