A blonde accountant with connections to the underworld from her previous work as a prison officer has gone on trial for murder after she allegedly hired teenagers to murder a millionaire OAP and steal his wealth.
The man's murder was only discovered after Polish police found his charred remains buried in a forest, and started a search for the killers.
Prosecutors say that scheming Monika Antosik, 31, had moved from being a prison officer into qualifying as an accountant and had hatched her plan to bump off wealthy estate agent Alexander Kucharski, 86, from the Polish capital Warsaw, after discovering he was worth several million euros.
The court heard that with the knowledge of all the different crimes committed from her work as a prison officer, she felt the plan to kill the wealthy OAP was a get rich quick scheme that could not fail. As a result she had coaxed 19-year-old Grzegorz Ostrowski into going to the man’s house and killing him.
Grzegorz in turn persuaded a 15-year-old girl to come with him to help and after breaking into the man's house they had killed him, chopped up the body and put the remains in a suitcase, which was then dumped in a wood. Two weeks later they had gone back and set fire to the remains.
Prosecutor Anna Zeromska said: "The woman had prepared a very precise plan, the motive for which was the acquisition of the victim’s property.
"Following the murder, she was ready to implement the next part of the plan and preliminary findings suggest she was preparing false documents including fake legal papers."
Police became suspicious after it emerged that these drafted legal documents that connected Monika to her wealthy victim were being forged, leading to an investigation that uncovered the true extent of the crime.
Her plan was foiled when police moved to arrest all three and bring charges over the murder. The woman and the teenage boy face life in jail if convicted.
The 15-year-old girl meanwhile will have to appeal before a Juvenile Court.
