A MAN who kidnapped his fiancee and buried her alive has admitted to possessing explosives.
Marcin Kasprzak, 27, who was jailed for life last January after he was convicted of the attempted murder of Michelina Lewandowska, has appeared before a judge again to face new charges.
And the appearance comes just a week after he lost a High Court appeal against his 20-year sentence.
Appearing before judge His Honour Tom Bayliss QC at Leeds Crown Court yesterday, Kasprzak, formerly of Penistone Road, Fenay Bridge, pleaded guilty to eight charges of possessing offensive explosives.
The charges come after police found quantities of eight different chemicals at his Fenay Bridge home on May 30 last year when they searched the house following his arrest for the attempted murder of Ms Lewandowska.
It is thought lawyers had been waiting for his appeal to conclude before they could bring him before the courts for possessing the substances.
The court was not told what quantity of each chemical Kasprzak had but he admitted having no lawful reason for possessing them.
The chemicals included potassium permanganate, aluminium powder, ammonium nitrate and iron oxide.
But the court delayed sentence for further legal arguments and the possible calling of Ms Lewandowska as a witness at court today.
She last appeared in court in December last year when she bravely faced the man who tried to murder her to tell the court how she was shot with a stun gun, bound with tape and put inside a cardboard box.
The box was then taken by Kasprzak and his co-accused Patryk Borys, to woods near Woodsome Hall Golf Club, where they buried her in a shallow grave.
But she broke free by using her engagement ring to hack through the box and then clawed herself out and ran for help.
The court heard she shared the Fenay Bridge house with fellow Pole Kasprzak.
He told her he had hated her for four years and that he believed she was going to take their son Jakub away from him to Poland.
After a lengthy trial Kasprzak was convicted of attempted murder and given a life sentence.
Borys, of Rashcliffe Hill Road, Thornton Lodge, was cleared of attempted murder but jailed for more than four years for kidnapping.
