Piotr Szitler, aged 37, of Wheat Close, Daventry, appeared at Northampton Magistrates’ Court and pleaded not guilty to charges of fraud and converting criminal property.

It is alleged that Szitler stole £102,467 from Fawsley Hall, where he worked as bar staff member from January 2011 to September 2014.

The court heard that the money was allegedly transferred to a personal bank account in his and his wife’s name.

Aleksandra Szitler also appeared in court alongside her husband and pleaded not guilty to converting criminal property.

Magistrates declined jurisdiction in the case. A preliminary hearing will be held at Northampton Crown Court on July 24.
