Below is the statement from the Crown Prosecution Service, commenting after the verdict was returned in the Carlisle murder case:
“Piotr Zygner and Sylwester Kawalec have today been convicted of murdering Mr Kulinski and Paulina Mucha has been convicted of his manslaughter.
"They targeted their victim outside his own home and subjected him to a violent and brutal attack - he was stabbed multiple times and received fatal injuries.
“Throughout the investigation and the trial, they have sought to cover up their truly dreadful crime.
"They even enlisted the help of other defendants to provide false alibis and conceal evidence relating to the murder.
“Nevertheless, the CPS has been determined to bring them to justice for their actions.
"As a result, Artur Woszczyna and Artur Skoczen have also been convicted of conspiring to pervert the course of justice, while Adam Karpuk and Paulina Mucha pleaded guilty to this charge at an earlier hearing.
“It is testament to the courage of the witnesses who came forward and gave evidence that we were able to build a strong case and secure these convictions.
– Isla Chilton, Senior Crown Prosecutor, Crown Prosecution Service
