Two women are GUILTY of murder after they abused and tortured ‘quiet and shy’ neighbour, 60, to death


Two women allegedly tortured and kicked their neighbour to death after falsely accusing him of being a paedophile.

What Happened?

Zoe Rider, 36, and Nicola Lethbridge, 45, attacked ‘quiet and shy’ 60-year-old Stephen Koszyczarski, even filming some of the sadistic attack as they taunted him with sickening, unfounded abuse.

How He Was Tortured

Jurors at Sheffield Crown Court were shown footage of the killers baselessly labelling him a ‘dirty f***ing wrong ‘un’ who was ‘abusing little girls’ as they threatened to mutilate him with scissors.

As Mr Koszyczarski, who was reported to have a mild learning difficulty, pleaded for mercy, telling them ‘I can’t stop bleeding’, one of his killers replied: ‘Do you think I give a f***?’

The jury took just two hours and 35 minutes to find Rider and Lethbridge guilty of murder and an additional charge of robbery.

He Begged For Help

He used a call line to beg for help, asking for an ambulance as he lay dying, and a recording of his final call was played to the court in which he could be heard asking for his property back.

Then they left him critically injured and went to a nearby property. Mr Koszyczarski died in hospital on August 11.

How Police Found the Killers

Police found out the killers by doing ‘old-fashioned police work’ including door-to-door inquiries.

The pair’s phones were seized and the horrific footage of their attack pored over by specialists, which showed them attacking him, falsely labelling him a pedophile and taunting: ‘Not even denying it you f***ing c***.’

Evidences Found

Forensic officers then discovered trace amounts of Mr Koszyczarski’s blood on a pair of cream jogging bottoms worn by one of the attackers.

Both women turned on each other during the trial – but jurors saw through their attempts to pin blame on one another.

The court heard the women had carried out their attack without any evidence to suggest Mr Koszyczarski was a sex offender.
