He is also alleged to have killed his wife’s father, Marek Garstka, 56, and her friend Marta Dominika De La Haye, 34, and five-year-old daughter Julia Frances.

Detectives had been waiting for nearly two weeks to quiz Rzeszowski about the massacre in the Channel Island’s capital, St Helier.

He has been receiving treatment in hospital for stab wounds.
