Two Luton men have been charged with the murder of a Polish man found with head injuries in a car park on June 14.

Carl Stockwell, 25, of Dallow Road and Daniel McRedmond, 19, of Shirley Road, were charged by officers from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit, on the direction of the Crown Prosecution Service, after the death of Zbignew ‘Ziggy’ Pawelec.

Mr Pawelec, 50, was found unconscious in George Street West car park by a member of the public and was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge, where he died on Tuesday 17.

Stockwell and McRedmond will appear at Luton Magistrates Court this morning (Thursday June 26).

A third man has been released on bail pending further enquiries.

While two men have now been charged in relation to this offence Detective Inspector Jon McAdam from the Major Crime Unit is still keen to speak to anyone who may have further information about what happened.

DI McAdam is keen to speak with anyone who may have seen Ziggy Pawelec in Luton on either Friday June 13 or Saturday June 14, or from anyone who may have seen or heard anything out of the ordinary in George Street West on the Saturday.

Mr Pawelec was a Polish national who had been living in Luton since 2008.

His family are in Poland.

A post mortem revealed Mr Pawelec died from head injuries.
