Serial killer sues for compensation because she feels segregated in prison
A serial killer who murdered three men in a horrific crime spree has asked for compensation because she feels being segregated at prison is a breach of her human rights.
Joanna Dennehy who is listed as one the most dangerous women in the world is currently challenging the decision to segregate her at HMP Bronzefield prison.
She claims she is a victim of the Human Rights Convention and disability discrimination, the Sun reported.
During a hearing at the High Court, her lawyer Hugh Southey QC said she was vulnerable due to personality disorders and asked for damages to be awarded.
Incredibly, the court heard the reason she had been segregated was because prison authorities discovered a breakout plot that involved cutting off a guard’s finger and using it to trick security biometrics.
Dennehy is one of three women to be given a whole life prison term in the UK – after she stabbed lover Kevin Lee and housemates Lukasz Slaboszewski and John Chapman, dumping each body in ditches in Cambridgeshire.
She randomly selected two men walking their dogs, stabbing them in frenzied knife attacks but fortunately both men survived.
She told newsmen she carried out the attacks to gratify her ‘sadistic love for blood’.
Later she told a psychiatrist: ‘I killed to see how I would feel, to see if I was as cold as I thought I was. Then it got more-ish.’
