Three men will stand trial later this year after being charged in connection with the 2011 disappearance and murder of Huddersfield man Dariusz Michalowski
Ernest Weber aged 45, of no fixed address and Adam Tolwinski aged 39 of Devonshire Street, Keighley appeared at Leeds Crown Court yesterday (Wednesday 19 April) charged with the murder of Mr Michalowski as well as perverting the course of justice and preventing a legal burial.
A third man, Piotr Weber aged 42 of Bridgend Close in Middlesbrough, had appeared before the courts at an earlier hearing in March charged with perverting the course of justice and preventing a legal burial.
All have been remanded in custody and will stand trial before Leeds Crown Court starting on September 4.
Dariusz disappeared in Birkby in March 2011, leading to police launching an extensive and long-running operation to uncover what had happened to him.
His remains were located on land in Mixenden in December 2020.
The men were arrested in March 2023, following enquiries by West Yorkshire Police’s Homicide and Major Enquiry Team, in association with law enforcement partners in the UK and Europe.
