McArthur, of Rochdale, Greater Manchester, has been bailed on a tagged curfew to a supported housing project.
Today Judge Peter Johnson set a provisional date for his seven-day trial as July 5 2021.
McArthur will not be asked to enter a plea until a psychiatric report has been prepared on him on behalf of the defence.
