Man found guilty of Boston murder
A MAN is facing life imprisonment after a jury this afternoon (Tues) convicted him of the murder of a migrant worker whose body was found in the South Forty Foot Drain, Boston.
The jury at Lincoln Crown Court took just 90 minutes to return a guilty verdict against 35-year-old Slawomir Dziob.
Dziob, formerly of Fieldfare Croft, Boston had denied the murder of 28-year-old Jan Pawel Stochnialek, between December 23, 2011 and January 25, 2012. He told the jury he was a friend of the dead man and they had plans to set up a gangmaster agency together. Dziob was also convicted of perverting the course of justice.
During the two week trial the jury heard that Mr Stochnialek , who lived with his girlfriend in a rented house at The Laurels in Boston, was last seen alive at a 2011 Christmas Eve party held at Dziob's home.

The two men were involved in a heated argument over a claim that Mr Stochnialek had paid money for Dziob to be beaten up.
Dziob left the rented house immediately after the party and moved to Salford in Greater Manchester.
He was arrested after the discovery of Mr Stochnialek's body on January 25. Investigations showed Mr Stochnialek had over 30 injuries and he was dead before he entered the water.
Subsequent forensic tests revealed traces of the dead man's blood on carpets, walls and the ceiling of the Fieldfare Croft property.
Mr Stochnialek's blood was also found on Dziob's shoes and watch.
Judge Michael Heath remanded Dziob in custody and he will be sentenced tomorrow (Wed).
