Jersey judge: Brutality of killings 'hard to believe'

The judge sentencing Damian Rzeszowski to 30 years in jail on six counts of manslaughter said:

The horror and brutality of these killings is hard to believe.

Within a quarter of an hour all six people had died, their lives cruelly cut short.

The court is in no doubt from the nature of the attacks that you intended to kill all six victims.

This was not a case of murder - the court found you guilty of manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility - but you still pose a risk of harm to anyone you are in a relationship with.

– Judge Michael Birt, Bailiff of Jersey

Builder jailed for Jersey killings

A man who carried out a frenzied knife attack on six people, including his wife and two young children, has been jailed for 30 years, police said.

Damian Rzeszowski armed himself with kitchen knives and killed his father-in-law Marek Gartska, 56, wife Izabela Rzeszowska, 30, daughter Kinga, five, and two-year-old son Kacper, at their Jersey home on 14 August last year.

The 31-year-old Polish builder also turned on his wife's friend, Marta De La Haye, 34, and her five-year-old daughter Julia, who were at the house for a barbecue.
