Jersey stabbings: Bodies released

The bodies of the six Polish people stabbed to death in St Helier in August have been released for burial by Jersey's relief coroner.

Dr Margaret Baye adjourned the inquests into the deaths until after any criminal cases have been concluded.

The bodies were released after Det Sgt Stewart Gull, the lead investigating officer into the deaths, confirmed their names, ages and times of death.

No objections to the bodies' release were put forward in the hearing.

The bodies of Izabela Rzeszowska, 30, her children, Kinga, five, and Kacper, two and her father Marek Garstka, 56 are due to be cremated in Jersey.

While the bodies of Marta Dominika De La Haye, 34, and her five-year-old daughter Julia are to be repatriated to Poland.

Thirty-year-old Damian Rzeszowski has been charged with six murders and is being held in custody.
