Two people accused of being part of a burglary where a jeweller died in Bury St Edmunds have gone on trial.

66-year-old jewellery shop owner Peter Avis was found dead with stab wounds in his flat above Collis & Son on January 13th. The property had been ransacked and a number of valuable items were missing. 

31-year-old Pawel Borowiecki from Roslyn Road in London, has pleaded not guilty to conspiracy to commit burglary. 27-year-old Aleksandra Karpiuk from Lake Avenue in Bury St Edmunds, denies the same charge. She also denies assisting an offender by driving Pyotr Melaniuk to Stansted Airport as he fled to his native Poland after the killing. 

Melaniuk, 28, also known by the first name Ireneusz, previously admitted murder and burglary. He has been remanded in custody. He was arrested in Poland and extradited to the UK. 

Two other men have also admitted their involvement, the court heard. Kamel Kita, 20, of no fixed address but arrested in London, has admitted burglary. Pawel Pacian, 34, of Lake Avenue, Bury St Edmunds, has admitted handling stolen goods. 

The trial, which is expected to last up to two weeks, continues.
