The lawyer of female serial killer, Joanna Dennehy, has sued for compensation claiming she was segregated at her prison, which is a breach of human rights.

Dennehy, who was imprisoned in 2014 for the horrific crime spree, is asking for compensation because segregation at HMP Bronzefield makes her 'upset'.

Her counsel, Hugh Southey is challenging the jail administrators' decision in London's High Court.

He told Justice Singh Dennehy was a victim of treatment banned by the Human Rights Convention and disability discrimination.

During the hearing, he said she was vulnerable due to personality disorders and asked for damages to be awarded.

Joanna Dennehy was imprisoned in 2014 for a horrific 10-day crime spree in which she stabbed lover Kevin Lee and housemates Lukasz Slaboszewski and John Chapman, dumping each body in ditches in Cambridgeshire in March last year.

According to the Daily Mail, she is the third woman to be given a whole life prison sentencing, along with Moors murderer Myra Hindley and House of Horrors serial killer Rose West.
