A Salisbury man has been found guilty of murdering his wife and daughter in broad daylight in the city.
Marcin Zdun, aged 40, was found guilty at Winchester Crown Court today (17/12) of the murder of his 40-year-old wife Aneta Zdun and their 18-year-old daughter Nikoleta at their home in Wessex Road, Salisbury on Monday 1 June 2020.
The jury found that Zdun had intended to kill the pair and was not suffering from an abnormality of his mental functioning, which had been claimed during the trial.
Zdun, had been living away from the family home at another address in Salisbury. On the morning of the incident, he walked through the city to the house and stabbed both women with a knife. He then attempted to flee the area but was tackled to the ground by workmen working nearby. They held on to him until our officers arrived to detain him.
A murder investigation was launched by the Brunel Major Crime Investigation Team and on the following day he was charged with murder.
The court had heard of difficulties in their relationship, Zdun had wrongly suspected that his wife had been cheating on him with one of his colleagues at the Tesco Extra store on Southampton road where he worked.
There were several incidents that manifested from his jealousy and possessive behaviour, after one such incident he left the family home.
Marcin Zdun was remanded in custody and will be sentenced tomorrow (18/12) at Winchester Crown Court.
