Killer Joanna Dennehy is dating a fellow female murderer in prison, the pair are serving life at the same jail and have murdered four men between them.
Dennehy, 37, who was jailed in 2014 after killing three men during a 10-day spree, has now coupled up with Emma Aitken, 25, jailed alongside her father and boyfriend for killing one man, reports The Sun.
Mother-of-two Dennehy is one of only two women in Britain serving a whole-life prison term, the other is Rose West.
She stabbed three men to death; Lukasz Slaboszewski, 31, John Chapman, 56, and Kevin Lee, 48, whose bodies she dumped in ditches outside Peterborough, where she lived before knifing two more men in Hereford.
Aitken, is serving a term of a minimum term of 12 years after being jailed aged 19 in 2014 for the murder of traveller Barry Smith, who’s burnt body was found outside a social club in Kilburn, Derbyshire.
Aitken and Dennehy are said to pass the time in jail making trifles and cheesecake while other prisoners stay in their cells.
The murderers have even gifted each other embroidered cushions with each others’ names on, reports The Sun.
A source told The Sun: ‘The jail has been on virtually permanent lockdown — but Joanna has been going out to do her laundry and going to the kitchen with Emma.
Adding: ‘Other inmates are scared of Joanna because of her crime and her attitude. She is not someone to be messed with.’
Dennehy’s first victim was a Polish man, Lukasz Slaboszewski, 31, who had come to believe Dennehy was his girlfriend.
She lured him to a property with suggestive texts, then stabbed him through the heart.
Dennehy then used a pocket knife to kill her housemate John Chapman, 56, stabbing him once in the neck.
The third victim was her landlord, Kevin Lee, 48, who she lured with the promise of sexual favours.
Excited by the police manhunt for her, she then stabbed Robin Bereza from behind in Hereford on April 2 2013.
Nine minutes later, she knifed John Rogers. Both men survived.
She was caught after two days on the run.
Dennehy, who was brought up in a stable family home in the Home Counties, carried out the attacks to gratify her ‘sadistic love for blood’.
The Old Bailey was told the killer had a ‘sexual and sadistic motivation’.
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.’
Experts said Dennehy craved notoriety and wanted to humiliate her victims through sick sex games. Before the killings she had boasted she had already killed four times.
When the three bodies were found, police launched a high-profile murder investigation.
Meanwhile Dennehy travelled to Hereford and started scouring the streets with accomplice Gary Stretch for more men to kill.
She told him: ‘I want to have my fun.’
The pair randomly selected two dog walkers, retired fireman Robin Bereza, 64, and John Rogers, 56.
Dennehy stabbed them in frenzied knife attacks. Both survived the horrific attacks only because of swift medical intervention.
During her search for further victims, Dennehy posed for photos with a huge serrated knife and bragged that she and Stretch were ‘like Bonnie and Clyde’, whose gang killed nine policemen in 1930s America.
