Six in court after man's death in Carlisle

Six people have appeared in court in connection with the death of a Polish factory worker who was stabbed outside his home in Carlisle.

Three people have been charged with murder and another three with assisting an offender after Piotr Kulinski, 32, lost his life in Harraby.

Police and ambulances were called just after 6am on Sunday, October 14 to a cul-de-sac off Arnside Road following reports that a man had been stabbed.

Paramedics were unable to save Mr Kulinski, who worked at the city’s Cavaghan & Gray factory.

He had a partner and a young child. All six charged following Mr Kulinski’s death are originally from Poland.

Those charged with murder are: Piotr Zygner, 30, Paulina Mucha, 26 and Sylwester Kawalec, 23, all of Currock Road, Carlisle.

They appeared together at Carlisle Crown Court today where the charge was put to them again following an appearance before magistrates last week.

The two men were dressed in blue jeans and white t-shirts. Both sported close cropped hair. Mucha was dressed in dark clothing, her hair tied back.

No pleas were entered and the three were remanded in custody.

Those charged with assisting an offender were then brought into the same dock in court three at the city centre justice complex.

They are: Adam Karpuk, 23, of Warwick Road, Carlisle, Artur Skoczen, 30, of Ashman Close, Denton Holme, Carlisle and Artur Woszczyna, 44, of Beverley Rise, Harraby, Carlisle.

Karpuk and Skoczen wore blue jeans and white t-shirts, Woszczyna wore a track suit top.

No pleas were entered and they too were remanded in custody.

A translator was in court relaying the discussions to the defendants.

All six will next appear in court for a plea and case management hearing on February 18.
