Murder was 'dreadful, pitiless crime committed in cold blood'

You murdered a fine young woman with everything to live for for money.

Rafal Nowak, the images of you leading Catherine by the hand the evening before her death buying items for what you knew was her last meal are utterly chilling. Your only emotions have been for yourself.

Anna Lagwinowicz, your conduct has been deceitful, manipulative and cruel. You played your full part in this wicked crime.

So did you Tadevsz Dmytryszyn.

This was a murder with the expectation of gain. There were significant aggravating factors and no mitigation."

– Mrs Justice Sharp, Bristol Crown Court
