Newry woman Lindsay White found guilty of horrific 2009 murder
Following a two week trial Lindsay White has been found guilty of the murder of Marek Muszynski in Newry in July 2009. Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Chief Inspector Gareth Talbot welcomed the verdict and said, “I welcome the jury’s finding today. Lindsay White has left a family without their beloved son and prolonged their heartbreak by denying any involvement in this attack.”
He continued, “Marek was a Polish National who came to Northern Ireland to explore the opportunities this country could offer him. His life ended on a remote pathway in Newry after a brutal and sustained attack. The co-accused in this case, Adrian Cunningham, pleaded guilty and accepted his part in this horrendous crime but Lindsay White has denied her involvement from the beginning, causing more despair and sorrow for Marek’s family and friends.”
The jury in Newry Crown Court today took just one hour in deliberation, dismissing White’s claims of innocence and sentencing her to life in prison. Sobbing as sentenced was passed, White was unanimously found guilty and was told by Judge David McFarland that the only sentence he could give was life, adding, “and I impose that on you.”
Commending the jury, the judge added, “it was clear you have been a diligent jury throughout the trial and have followed the evidence.” The mother of White, who chose to wait outside the court room as the verdict was read, collapsed as her daughter was sentenced to life. She was treated by ambulance staff from Daisy Hill Hospital.
