A mugger who killed a 100-year-old woman whose neck was broken in a handbag robbery has been jailed.

Sofija Kaczan died of pneumonia brought on by her injuries on 6 June in Normanton, Derby.

Artur Waszkiewicz, 40, of Wolfa Street, Derby, has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.

Judge Nicholas Dean QC said Waszkiewicz was a “cowardly petty criminal” whose dangerous attack had led to “awful consequences”.

Mrs Kaczan was robbed near her home in Empress Road, Normanton, on 28 May as she made her way to church.

Waszkiewicz had denied manslaughter and robbery but was found guilty on Wednesday at Derby Crown Court.
