Tomasz Dembler’s remains were found in Normanby on April 12, 2013.
Dr. Dembler (39), was also discovered with a severe head injury, 15 fractured bones, cut lips and mouth, as well as severe bruises to his back, chest, and head.
His post-mortem revealed that he was likely to have been repeatedly kicked, stamped on and inflicted with injuries to the neck by his attacker.
Teesside Crown Court heard on Monday that a Home Office pathologist reported that Mr. Dembler had suffered injuries that would have likely impaired his use and ability to inhale.

Teesside Crown Court is currently investigating five Polish citizens, four men and one women. They are accused of the murder of Mr. Dembler.
An indictment was filed against Tomasz Dembler for murder. A post mortem found that Dembler had suffered serious injuries, including a broken back.
His remains, Mr. Dembler (39), were found in Normanby on 12 April 2013. Prosecutors say that his killers left him in a shallow burial.
Zbigniew Pawlowski (41), Newport, Middlesbrough, Rafal Chmielewski (37) of Grangetown; Tomasz Rezicki (37) of Grove Hill Middlesbrough, Adam Czerwinski (45) of North Ormesby, and Monika Solerska (37) of Grangetown) all deny the commission of murder.
According to the prosecution, Tomasz died in the early hours of Sunday morning March 21, after receiving a call from his friend asking for a lift.
His father, who had separated from his wife, told his friend that the party he attended in Middlesbrough was over and that he couldn’t stop her.
Peter Makepeace QC told the court that Mr. Dembler was dead that morning. He was buried in Normanby’s Flatts Lane Country Park, where he claimed that it was “a miracle” that he was discovered.
CCTV footage of six trips that Mr. Dembler made from Flatts Lane to Edward Street was shown by the prosecution. They claim they took place after his death.
He explained to the jury that the initial journeys were reconnaissance trips in order to find out where it was possible to dispose of the body.

Two girls were enjoying a picnic in the woods when they found Mr Dembler’s corpse a few weeks later, on April 12. Two girls saw Dembler’s toes and called police.
The court was informed Monday afternoon that certain accused were blaming one another.
According to Mr Makepeace, Chmielewski claimed that Zbigniew Pawlowski had beaten Mr. Dembler to death. Pawlowski also threatened Mr. Dembler with a gun when Pawlowski wanted him to dial an ambulance.
Chmielewski claimed, Mr Makepeace added, that Pawlowski had taken Mr Dembler’s hand and put it in a bag.
Prosecution claims Chmielewski’s girlfriend Monika Solerska – the only woman to face charges – claimed she was upstairs at Edward Street the night of the alleged parties and she wasn’t aware of what had happened.
Solerska, who according to prosecution was captured driving her Mercedes up Ormesby Bank and then on to the cemetery on Sunday March 21. She claims the trip was social.

A silent prosecution stated that Adam Czerwinski had last seen Mr Dembler downstairs in his small, terraced home that he shared. Pawlowski was also present.
The prosecution claims that Tomasz Remczycki, like Chmielewski will say that Pawlowski beat up Dembler but that he was too afraid to take action.
According to the court, Pawlowski will claim that he fled Edward Street that evening at 11 p.m. and that he knew nothing about a crime.
Tomasz Dembler came from Poland 20 years ago to move to the UK. After he divorced from his mother, his life spiralled downwards and he eventually moved to Middlesbrough. He rented a room at Adam Czerwinski’s terraced house in Middlesbrough. The prosecution claims he was killed.
Peter Makepeace stated to the court Tomasz had become distant from his family because they found Tomasz’s use of illicit drugs and drinking difficult to understand. The last words he left for his mother was “leave me alone”.
