LESS than six months before her murdered his wife and took his own life, a court heard Mariusz Lipinski said he would kill Malgorzata Lipinska.

In February this year Lipinski appeared before Ipswich magistrates after committing yet more violence against his estranged wife.

Prosecutor Andrea Reynolds told the court: “He said he would kill her if she did not go back to him.”

Ms Reynolds told the court that Lipinski arranged for his wife to meet him at Tacket Street car park in Ipswich so that he could give her a laptop to contact her family in Poland.

It was heard that the couple had been married for 15 years before separating the week before the incident.

Ms Reynolds said Lipinski arrived in his Audi A6 and she said he was clearly very drunk.

He pulled up beside her opened the door and pulled her by the neck and got her into the car.

The court then heard how he proceeded to grab her round the neck and by the hair.

Her screams were heard by two passers-by who went over to the car and saw her being held over his lap.

The court heard how she was screaming “help me” and when an attempt to open the door failed, one of them reached through a gap in the window and opened the door.

After some struggling Lipinski, then of Siloam Place, Ipswich - between Duke Street and Fore Hamlet - eventually released his wife and she told rescuers to call the police.

When officers found his car in Duke Street later in the day they discovered he had been drinking.

Although he claimed the alcohol had been bought from Tesco in Duke Street and he drank it away from the car, a bottle was found in the vehicle.

The court heard he had 118mcgs of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath - more than three times the legal limit of 35mcgs.

Magistrates were told Lipinski was already on bail in breach of a conditional discharge for assault at the time of the offence.

Raphael Pigott, mitigating said: “His wife is looking for a way forward in that relationship.”
