Two men stand trial accused of murder of Lincoln pensioner Sonny Grey
Two men poured boiling water over Lincoln pensioner Sonny Grey as they tortured him to get him to reveal where he hid his money, a court heard.
Nottingham Crown Court heard that Rocky Curtis and Robert Holmes also held one of Mr Grey's fingers in boiling water during the 70-year-old's horrific ordeal at his home in Westwick Gardens, Lincoln.
Curtis, 25, of Newbridge Lane, Wisbech and Holmes, 24, of Redmoor Lane, Wisbech, deny murder.
Mr Grey suffered "extensive scalding" to his body as well as cuts, bruises and a broken jaw.
Curtis' brother Tom is also said to have been involved but he has since died.
The court heard that the trio had pre-planned their journey to Mr Grey's house on October 29, 2011.
Mr Grey died as a result of his injuries in hospital in Nottingham two days later.
The trial continues.
