Murder charge for Nottingham stabbing

22/06/2012

The Crown Prosecution Service has today authorised Nottinghamshire Police to charge a Nottingham man in relation to a fatal stabbing in the centre of Nottingham on Wednesday 20 June. Marcin Cwiakalo has been charged with murder.

Steve Chappell, Deputy Chief Crown Prosecutor at CPS East Midlands said: "The evidence has been reviewed by an experienced Senior Crown Prosecutor, who has decided that there is sufficient evidence to charge Marcin Cwiakalo with murder, and that it is in the public interest for a prosecution to take place.

"It is important to note that proceedings are now active. The defendant is entitled to a fair trial, and it is important that nothing is said or reported that would prejudice that right."
