A man on trial for murder told police that he was not involved in the killing – but said his co-accused was.

Mariusz Skiba, who was arrested following the death of Przemyslaw Cierniak, told police during a series of interviews that his co-accused Dariusz Kaczkowski stabbed the 41-year-old Boston man.

Mary Loram QC, prosecuting, told Lincoln Crown Court about details of interviews conducted by police with Skiba in January of this year.

 

Skiba, the jury heard, told officers that the three men had walked to a car park off Wormgate in Boston town centre to drink and take amphetamine.

He described it as “a safe place” as police patrolling in the centre of the town poured away their alcohol if they were found with it.

Skiba said: “It is true that I was standing there with Przemyslaw Cierniak and Dariusz but I had no involvement in causing him injuries.”

He said that Mr Cierniak asked Dariusz for a pound and moments later Dariusz suddenly began to hit Mr Cierniak.

 

In the first interview read out to the jury Skiba said: “He [Cierniak] shouted ‘leave me’. Then I saw a bit of blade as he was stabbing him. I told Przemyslaw to run.”

The jury has been told that Kaczkowski declined to answer questions when he was interviewed by police.

The prosecution say that Mr Cierniak was attacked by Dariusz Kaczkowski and Mariusz Skiba after the three of them went to a car park off Wormgate in Boston town centre.

  

During a hearing on Thursday, June 13, pathologist Dr Stuart Hamilton said that Mr Cierniak died as a result of stab wounds to the chest.

Dr Hamilton described three of the wounds as significant, while the others were described as ‘moderate’.

He told the court that Mr Cierniak’s lung and liver were both punctured as a result of being stabbed.

The pathologist added: “Any one of the three stab wounds could have been responsible for his death.”

He is alleged to have been punched and kicked before the fatal stab wounds.

The jury heard how Mr Cierniak fled from the car park into a nearby tanning studio where he collapsed.

Emergency services made efforts to resuscitate him, but he died shortly afterwards.

The trial continues.
