Man admits killing parents in 'frenzied' knife attack

A man has admitted killing his own parents in a "frenzied, prolonged" knife attack.

Kamil Dantes, 29, pleaded guilty to the manslaughter of his parents, Leszek Dantes and his wife Malgorzata Dantes on the grounds of diminished responsibility. He will be sentenced at a later date.

The 54-year-olds’ bodies were discovered at around 6am on Monday 21 April 2014 in the upstairs front bedroom of the family home in Hardwick Road East in Worksop.

The Dantes each had around thirty stab wounds.

Mrs Dantes was Mr Dantes' full time carer, after the 54-year-old was diagnosed with a brain tumour and became reliant on a wheelchair.

In recent years relatives had noticed changes in Kamil’s behaviour, with him becoming more and more negative towards them. This appeared to be aggravated by reported use of steroids and cannabis.

He was detained under the Mental Health Act for two weeks in 2011 after reporting to police that his parents were dead.

Since then he had been on medication and closely monitored.

Inspectors say the couple could not have predicted what their son might do.

Kamil subjected his parents to a frenzied, prolonged attack on that April morning without any provocation. Caught unaware, they had no time to fight back and certainly his father, who struggled to walk, had no means of escape. They trusted him, they supported him and this is how he repaid them. This incident has understandably taken its toll on their relatives, some of whom remain in Worksop. They asked that their privacy be respected to allow them the space and time to process what has happened to their family and find a way to continue on with their lives without them.

– Detective Chief Inspector Leigh Sanders
