Two little girls fled crying 'he's cut mummy,' according to a neighbour who took them in following a double killing in Salisbury.

Marcin Zdun, 39, appeared via video link before Basingstoke Magistrates' Court accused of the murder of wife Aneta Zdun, 40, and daughter Nikoletta Zdun, 18.

Wiltshire Police officers arrested Zdun after the attack at the family's home on Wessex Road on Monday afternoon.

Officers discovered the body of Nikoleta, and her mum was found seriously injured.

Nikoletta Zdun was just 18 years old

Despite paramedics' efforts, Aneta died at the scene shortly after emergency services arrived.

Witnesses said they heard the two young girls screaming in terror before they fled to safety with a neighbour.

Aneta is said to have screamed "where are my children?!" in her dying moments.

Neighbours Nick and Jan Maher took the little girls into their home to keep them safe.

They ordered pizza for the shocked children and put them in front of cartoons on Nickelodeon.

Mrs Maher, 62, told The Sun: “They were screaming so I said, ‘You come with me’.

"The man who brought them out said, ‘He’s cut her throat’.

"As I was walking them back, they were saying, ‘He’s cut mummy, he’s cut mummy, he’s cut mummy’.” 

Mr Maher, 59, said: "There was some noise and I thought it was kids playing... but it got louder, dramatically louder.

"One of our neighbours was over the road with another guy and they pulled two kids out, which were the young daughters."
