Two Polish men have been jailed for life for the murder of a fellow Pole in Carlisle. Piotr Zygner will serve a minimum of 28 years and Sylwester Kawalec at least 22 years.
32 year old Piotr Kulinski was stabbed seven times outside his home in Harraby on October 14th last year. Sentencing the men, Judge Paul Batty said this was a murderous attack on a defenceless man in full view of his partner.
He told Zygner: "Because of your arrogance, your attitude afterwards and your complete lack of remorse you will go to jail for a minimum of 28 years."
The girlfriend of Zygner, Paulina Mucha, has been jailed for seven years for manslaughter.
