Lukasz Czapla Biography
Who is Lukasz Czapla ?
A man is to stand trial accused of murdering his two-year-old son by shooting and smothering him.
Lukasz Czapla allegedly killed Julius Czapla in a flat in Muirhouse, Edinburgh, on November 20 or 21 last year.
The 41-year-old man is alleged to have repeatedly hit the boy with a skewer.
Later, prosecutors allege that he repeatedly fired a compressed air pistol and shot his son in the head.
The murder charge further claims that Mr. Czapla placed a pillow over the boy’s face and “suffocated” him.
It is claimed that he had previously shown “malice and ill will” towards his son.
His QC Iain McSporran offered to plead guilty to a reduced count of wrongful death.
But this was rejected by prosecutor Alan Parfery during a hearing in Glasgow High Court.
Mr Czapla will now be tried for murder in Edinburgh on April 19 next year.
Among other charges, he is also charged with possession of drugs, including ecstasy, with separate charges of dangerous drinking and driving, as well as possessing an airgun.
Judge Lady Stacey set another pretrial hearing for March of next year.
