Female serial killer jailed for life in Britain

LONDON (AFP) - A British female serial killer who admitted murdering three men and dumping their bodies in ditches was on Friday sentenced to a life in prison without parole.

Joanna Dennehy, 31, had expressed no remorse for killing the men, who she knew, although she apologised for two attempted murders of strangers while she was on the run last year.

Sentencing her at the Old Bailey court in London, Judge Robin Spencer told Dennehy she was a "cruel, calculating, selfish and manipulative serial killer".

Dennehy had earlier pleaded guilty to murdering Lukasz Slaboszewski, 31, Kevin Lee, 48, and John Chapman, 56, in and around Peterborough in eastern England over a ten-day period in March 2013.
