UK killer gets life without parole

8:36 am on 1 March 2014

A British serial killer who admitted murdering three men and dumping their bodies in ditches has been sentenced to a life in prison without parole.

Joanna Dennehy, 31, had earlier pleaded guilty to the killings which took place in and around Peterborough in eastern England over a ten-day period in March last year.

All the men were stabbed to death.

In sentencing her at the Old Bailey court in London, the judge described Dennehy as a "cruel, calculating, selfish and manipulative serial killer".

Dennehy has expressed no remorse for the murders and said she killed to see how she would feel.
