Two men appear in court charged with murder - Luton


Two Polish men made a brief appearance at Luton Crown Court today, Tuesday, 21 August 2012, charged with murder, after their victim died from a head injury six days after he was found injured.

Konrad Kaczynski, 30 and Janusz Przystawski, 48, had originally been charged with inflicting grievous bodily harm with intent, but the charge was changed to one of murder.

Wlodzimierz Jablonski, 51 was found at his home in Stockwood Crescent, Luton on 07 August and died in hospital on 13 August.

The two men, who also come from Stockwood Crescent, did not have the charge put to them.

Beverley Cripps for the Crown Prosecution Service, said a provisional date for the murder trial has been set for 29 January next year.  The trial is expected to last two to three weeks, with many of the witnesses giving evidence through an interpreter.

Both men were remanded in custody and did not make applications for bail. They will be back in court on 09 November 2012 for a plea and case management hearing.
