Lincoln Prison inmate Mroz Krzysztof has been charged with the murder of inmate Alan Goode on October 31.
Polish national Krzysztof (35) has been remanded in custody at Nottingham Prison after he appeared at Lincoln Magistrates Court on Wednesday morning.
Alan Goode (73), from Wigston, was serving nine months for serial voyeurism after he was found in the women’s toilets in a Leicester shopping centre spying on women.
Krzysztof was at Lincoln Prison remanded in custody while awaiting trial over two unrelated charges in relation to an incident in September in Holbeach, South Lincolnshire, where he was living at the time.
On October 31 Goode was found by staff in his prison cell at around 5:45am and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
A post mortem carried out at QMC in Nottingham established the cause of Goode’s death as a serious head trauma.
Lincolnshire Police then launched a murder investigation and arrested Krzysztof, who is believed to be Goode’s cell mate.
Krzysztof was bailed on November 1 from police custody back to prison for psychological assessments to be carried out.
Then, on November 6, he was charged with murder and remanded in police custody.
After the court appearance at Lincoln Magistrates Court on November 6, Krzysztof was sent to Nottingham Prison.
A trial will begin at Lincoln Crown Court in December.
