Slawomir Zakrzewski, who was convicted of the manslaughter of Goode Foods cafe owner Gloria Burgos in July, has been given an indeterminate prison sentence for public protection with a minimum of five years

Indeterminate jail sentence for killer of Bermondsey Street’s Gloria Burgos

The body of 54 year old Colombian-born Gloria Burgos was found in her Goode Foods sandwich shop in Bermondsey Street last September. She had suffered 40 wounds.

Zakrzewski, who had been working at the cafe for a year until being sacked, returned to obtain a reference.

In his defence, Zakrzewski said he pushed her during a row resulting in her falling. He kicked her knowing she was injured but told the court that he did not know she would die from her injuries.

Her body was found five hours later.

Earlier this year a maple tree was planted in memory of Gloria Burgos in Tanner Street Park.

Zakrzewski, aged 23, of Norwood, was cleared of murder but found guilty of manslaughter.
