A COURT has heard how a mother-of-two died at her Carlisle home from “a combination of her major injuries”.
Police were called to 33-year-old Melinda Korosi’s Orton Road address early on the morning of September 15 last year. Carlisle Crown Court has heard that officers who entered the house found Miss Korosi lying on the landing with a “gaping” wound to her neck.
Next to her, and covered in her blood, was 29-year-old Miklos Verebes – her former partner. He is said to have told police: “It’s too late. She’s dead.”
Miss Korosi was pronounced dead at the scene. She had suffered severe injuries to her head and neck.
Today (TUES), a Home Office pathologist gave evidence at the crown court and confirmed his conclusion that Miss Korosi’s death was “as a result of a combination of her major injuries”. He stated that the neck wound was “caused by a sharp or relatively sharp type of implement”.
No defensive injuries were found on Miss Korosi’s body.
Two pieces of bloodstained rock were found by police at the scene, the court heard. These were said to have been “capable” of causing the neck injury.
Verebes, of no fixed address, is on trial having pleaded not guilty to the murder of Miss Korosi. He also denies three charges which allege that he raped Miss Korosi, between 2012 and 2016.
The trial continues.
