A Tesco worker has been charged with murder after his wife and 18-year-old daughter were found dead with their throats cut.
Marcin Zdun, 39, will appear via video link before Basingstoke Magistrates’ Court this morning.
Police were called to a disturbance shortly before 3 pm on Monday after locals reported terrified screams from a house in Salisbury, Wiltshire.
Marcin was chased and pinned him to the ground by neighbors who caught him as he tried to flee the scene after committing the alleged crime.
According to The Sun, officers discovered the body of 18-year-old Nikoleta Zdun at the property, while Marcin’s wife Aneta Zdun was found alive but died a short time later despite desperate efforts by paramedics to save her.
Two distraught young girls, aged five and six, were heard screaming in terror before they fled to safety and were consoled in the street by a concerned neighbour.
Horrified witnesses claim the two distraught little girls fled the house screaming in terror before allegedly telling a neighbour, ‘Mummy isn’t very well. She’s been cut.’
One neighbour said: “I heard terrified screams from inside the property and a man rushed out.
“He ran off and was chased by neighbours and punched in the face before some neighbours pinned him to the ground and waited for police to arrest him.”
The source added: “He has cut their throats with the two little girls in the house. The noise was horrendous you could hear them screaming for their lives.
“He killed his wife and his 18-year-old daughter.
“A neighbour went into the house and found the girls, aged five and six, and brought them outside.
“They were distraught, they were screaming the place down. The man ran off and he was chased by neighbours and punched in the face before some neighbours pinned him to the ground.
“It’s just heartbreaking, these two little girls now have no sister, no father, no mother.”
Neighbour Gary Smith, a retired Army veteran, said he had seen ‘some horrific things in combat but never anything like that’.
The 67-year-old, who rushed to help, said: ‘I went round there and in the front garden I could see a woman with her throat cut. It was horrible, I don’t understand how someone could do that.
‘I was in the services so I’ve seen my fair share, but I never saw anything like that.
‘The family were all nice to talk to, very friendly and always said hello. Not ones to have a full conversation, but polite.’
According to Mail Online, Forensic officers retrieved what appeared to be a knife from the roof of the house.
