Father guilty of family's manslaughter
Saturday 25 August 2012
A man who carried out a frenzied knife attack on six people, including his wife and two young children, was found guilty of manslaughter yesterday.
Damian Rzeszowski stabbed his father-in-law Marek Gartska, 56, wife Izabela Rzeszowska, 30, daughter Kinga, five, and two-year-old son Kacper, at their Jersey home on August 14 last year.
The 31-year-old Polish builder, pictured above, also turned on his wife's friend, Marta De La Haye, 34, and her five-year-old daughter Julia, who were at the house for a barbecue.
Rzeszowski was convicted of six counts of manslaughter following a trial at the Royal Court in St Helier, Jersey.
The court heard that Rzeszowski's marriage had been under strain after his wife confessed to a two-month affair and threatened to commit suicide.
Rzeszowski admitted the killings but his defence argued that he was suffering moderate to severe depression, causing an onset of psychotic symptoms.
