Pole charged with Jersey murders
Saturday 27 August 2011
A man was charged yesterday with the murders of six people, including his wife and two children in Jersey.
Damian Rzeszowski, 30, appeared before the island's Royal Court over the deaths of Izabela Rzeszowska, 30, and their children, Kinga, five, and two-year-old Kacper. He is also alleged to have killed his wife's father, Marek Garstka, 56, and her friend Marta Dominika De La Haye, 34, and her daughter Julia Frances, aged five.
Detectives had waited almost two weeks to quiz Rzeszowski about the massacre in the Channel Island's capital, St Helier. He has been receiving treatment in hospital as he is believed to have repeatedly stabbed himself in the chest after the attacks.
Rzeszowski was remanded in custody until his next court appearance on 28 October.
Post-mortem examinations confirmed all six victims, who were Polish, died from stab wounds. A team of police officers are expected to travel to Poland next week to interview families and friends of the victims.
