Seeing a new side of this Wisbech murder tonight (15th April).

The final episode of this season of '24 Hours in Police Custody' focuses on the death of Dzilva Butiene.

The 48-year-old was killed in her home in the town in April 2017.


Dzilva was pronounced dead at the property in Orange Grove after paramedics were called to the scene.

At the time her death didn't seem suspicious but a post mortem found she'd died from a trauma to the abdomen that caused her liver to lacerate in two places.

A manhunt was launched for Dzilva's partner, Kestutis Bauzys.

The 48-year-old was found sleeping in a tent in the woods outside of Wisbech and arrested by local officers.

Investigations showed he'd been to a shop 30mins before ambulance crews were called out and told the shop assistant his wife wasn't breathing.

He continued to claim Dzilva had died from a fall and her alcoholism and that he was not responsible for her death.


But he was found guilty of murder and was sentenced to life, to serve a minimum of 17-and-a-half years.

Detective Chief Inspector Alan Page said:

"This was a horrendous case of domestic abuse behind closed doors and Bauzys consistently denied any involvement in his partner's death.

"Thankfully the medical evidence showed her injuries were consistent with an assault, fall from a first floor building or high speed collision where a victim wasn't wearing a seatbelt.

"In this case officers had not received any previous reports of domestic abuse involving the couple but clearly Mrs Butiene was at significant risk.

"We would urge anyone who is in an abusive relationship to take the step to get support."

Anyone who is a victim of domestic abuse to should call police on 101 or call the national domestic violence helpline on 0808 2000 247.

The show is on from 9pm.
