Man Found Guilty Of Murder After Another Retrial

A 58-year-old man has again been found guilty of murdering a woman in Jersey.

Jamie Lee Warn was originally found guilty of killing Zsuzsanna Besenyei in 2019, and then again at a re-trial last year, but was then granted another re-trial this year.

Warn originally received a life sentence when he was last tried in 2019.

He will now be remanded in custody until sentencing.

Zsuszanna, who was originally from Hungary, had lived in Jersey for several years and knew Warn as they used to work together.

He was the last person to see her alive on 10 May 2018.

Her car was then found on St Aubin's Beach on 14 May. Two days later, her body was discovered at La Pulec Bay.

The investigation involved trawling through telecommunication and CCTV data, as well as close working with the fire, coastguard, and ambulance services.

"We respected the Court’s decision to give Warn another retrial, but there was never any question in our minds about his guilt.

We like to thank all the witnesses involved for their assistance in the case and our thoughts go out to Zsuzsanna’s family and close friends, who have lost their daughter, sister and friend.

We recognise this has been a hugely difficult and distressing time for them and we hope this verdict gives them some form of closure." - Detective Constable Caroline Foord.
