This story is over

A Lincolnshire man has been found guilty of manslaughter after killing his cellmate at Lincoln prison.

Alan Goode, 73, of Wigston, Leicester, was found dead in his cell at HMP Lincoln on Thursday, October 31 2013.

His cellmate Krysztof Mroz, 36, of Spalding, was charged with his murder in November 2013.

Alan was serving nine months after he was found in 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.

A post mortem carried out at QMC in Nottingham established the cause of Goode’s death as a serious head trauma.

After a trail lasting four days at Stafford Crown Court, before His Honour Judge John Wait, defendant Krysztof Mroz was convicted of manslaughter with diminished responsibility.

The case was adjourned until the morning of Friday, May 29 for sentencing at Stafford Crown Court.

Lincolnshire Police are expected to comment on the trial once sentencing has been passed.

A police spokesperson said: “In the meantime our sympathies lie with the friends of Mr Goode who had no known family.”
