Serial killer in Britain given full life termFebruary 22nd, 2008 - 8:28 pm ICT by admin
London, Feb 22 (DPA) Steven Wright, a British serial killer convicted of murdering five prostitutes in Ipswich in 2006, was Friday given a full life term, a maximum sentence meaning he will never be freed from prison. Ipswich Crown Court ruled that Wright, 49, had set out on a “campaign of murder” to kill the five women in a six-week frenzy just before Christmas, 2006.
Wright, a forklift truck driver, however, denied the murders.
The court heard that Wright knew all of the women, had drug addiction, and had sex with them.
The conviction is based largely on forensic and DNA evidence.
The naked bodies of the women, aged between 19 and 29, were found in woodlands around Ipswich, in southeast Britain, within a 10-day period in December 2006.
