Three others sentenced in Carlisle murder case

Three more Polish men have been sent to prison for perverting the course of justice following the murder of a man in Carlisle.

Artur Woszczyna was described as being "devious and manipulative" by the judge at Carlisle Crown Court. He was jailed for 10 years.

He disposed of blood stained clothes after 32 year old Piotr Kulinski was stabbed seven times outside his home in Harraby on October 14th last year. Artur Skoczen was jailed for five years and Adam Karpuk, who was recruited to dispose of a getaway car, was jailed for three years, four months.

The judge recommended that they serve at least half of their sentences.

Earlier two other Polish men were jailed for life for the murder of Mr. Kuliniski. Piotr Zygner will serve a minimum of 28 years and Sylwester Kawalec at least 22 years.
