Man kills wife, kids, father-in-law

Unable to face the break-up of his marriage, a man in Jersey killed six people including his wife and two young children.



London: Unable to face the break-up of his marriage, a man in Jersey killed six people including his wife and two young children, aged two and five, and his father-in-law in a brutal knife attack, a court heard Monday.

Damian Rzeszowski, 31, is accused of murdering his wife Izabela Rzeszowska, 30, along with their daughter Kinga, five, and two-year-old son Kacper, in the capital city of St Helier, last August, Daily Mail reported.

The Polish national is also accused of murdering his wife`s father Marek Garstka, 56, her friend Marta De La Haye, 34, along with her five-year-old daughter Julia.

Though Rzeszowski pleaded guilty to manslaughter through diminished responsibility in April, the manslaughter pleas were not accepted by the Crown, which argues the defendant was not suffering an "abnormality of the mind" when the attacks occurred.

The Royal Court in St Helier heard that Rzeszowski`s rampage took place against a backdrop of increasing marital difficulties between himself and his wife.
