Poland fires salvo over death case

BRIDGEPORT – The government of Poland has filed papers in Superior Court here seeking to block the upcoming death penalty hearing of former Trumbull resident Richard Roszkowski.

Roszkowski, 48, is scheduled to go before a 12-member jury Jan. 7 for the jury to decide if he should get death for killing a Bridgeport woman, her 9-year-old daughter and a Milford landscaper here in 2006.

This morning Poland, through local lawyer Robert Berke, filed a motion to intercede in the case so that they can oppose Roszkowski getting the death penalty. Although Roszkowski was born in the U.S. Poland claims he is one of their citizens because his mother was born there.
