Pair appear in court accused of choking and repeatedly stabbing disabled man to death before robbing him in Glasgow flat


TWO MEN have appeared at court today charged with the murder of disabled man Tomasz Lipiec.

Jason McInally, 50, and Patryck Janiski, 31, allegedly assaulted Mr Lipiec, 33, at a flat in Glasgow’s Townhead on 4 and 5 September.

Prosecutors state the pair compressed Mr Lipiec’s neck by putting an arm round him and repeatedly struck him on the head and body.

It is claimed they stamped on and repeatedly stabbed his body with a knife.

The pair face a second charge of stealing holdalls, a cap, a tin containing money, mobile phones, clothing, a bank card, a Polish identification card, a provisional driving licence, gloves, a TV and entertainment sound system from the flat on Dobbies Loan Place on 4 and 6 September.

McInally, of the city’s Hillhead, and Janiski of Govanhill, made no plea at a private hearing at Glasgow Sheriff Court.

They were remanded in custody pending further examination by Sheriff Mary Shields.

The pair will appear at court again within the next eight days.

Mr Lipiec's family launched a fundraiser to bring his body back to Poland to "bury him with dignity".

So far £1,300 has been donated to the cause aiming to raise £4,000 for the transportation of Tomasz's body.
