A Lincoln man has been sentenced to life in prison, with a minimum of 15 years, after he was found found guilty of murdering his mother at Derby Crown Court on October 9.
As previously reported, Kazik Pasierbek (39) was arrested after his mother, Margaret Lynette Pasierbek (72) was severly injured at their flat on St Botolphs Crescent in Lincoln on October 12, 2012.
Later that day, she died of her injuries at Lincoln County Hospital.
The court heard that Pasierbek, a heroin addict, beat her to death in a drug-fuelled rage.
During the course of the trial, it was found that he beat her because she would not give him money.
It has been the prosecution’s case that Pasierbek, who was under the influence of drugs, caused those fatal injuries.
It also heard that Mrs Krawcewicz carers had left her alive and well when they left the home at 8.45pm on October 11 last year.
However, they did witness an argument between Pasierbek and his mother, and a neighbour heard raised voices at 2.30am the following morning.
That afternoon, she died due to head injuries, and the prosecution believed that Pasierbek caused that harm.
DCI Martin Holvey of the East Midlands Special Operations Unit (Major Crime) said: “This was a brutal attack on a frail, vulnerable, elderly lady and we hope this conviction demonstrates our commitment to tackling serious domestic violence in Lincolnshire.
“We also hope it sends out a very clear message to offenders. If you commit crimes like this you will be arrested and put before the courts.
“I would like to thank the officers and the prosecuting authorities involved in the case for their hard work, professionalism and dedication.”
