A Lithuanian man who murdered his long-term girlfriend has been jailed for life.Read the full story ›
A Lithuanian man will be sentenced today (18th October) for murdering his girlfriend in Wisbech in April 2017.
46-year old Kestutis Bauzys killed 48-year old mother of two Dzilva Butiene in what police say was a horrendous case of domestic abuse behind closed doors.
A post mortem examination carried out by Dr Nat Cary concluded Mrs Butiene died of a trauma to the abdomen that had caused a laceration to her liver in two places.
“This was a horrendous case of domestic abuse behind closed doors. Bauzys consistently lied claiming Mrs Butiene had caused her injuries herself from falling over. The expert medical evidence stated that these type of injuries would be seen either from a forceful assault, a fall from a first floor building or a high speed road collision where the victim wasn’t wearing a seatbelt. We established that Mrs Butiene had not left the flat and that Bauzys had been the only person in her company at the time she would have received the fatal injury."
“Dzilva’s death has left utter devastation to all her friends and family here in Lithuania, including her two sons. We have all been affected by her death and remain to take each day at a time.”
Police say that in this case officers had not received any previous reports of domestic abuse.
They're urging anyone who finds themselves in an abusive relationship to find the courage to tell someone.
