Se­rial killer Den­nehy’s threat forced jail chiefs to trans­fer evil West to an­other prison

Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - News - BY DAN WAR­BUR­TON dan.war­bur­[email protected]­ror.co.uk

ROSE West was booted out her cushy prison cell af­ter more than a decade be­cause se­rial killer Joanna Den­nehy threat­ened to mur­der her.

The 64-year-old House of Hor­rors monster burst into tears as prison chiefs packed up her be­long­ings for a trans­fer from Low New­ton jail in Co Durham.

A source said: “West lived a life of lux­ury in there. She’s got it made be­cause she’s in the lif­ers’ unit. She doesn’t even leave her cell and they bring food to her.

“So she was gut­ted when she had to leave. She was in tears and the prison of­fi­cers just packed her things up. She was re­ally up­set and didn’t want to go.

“It’s been her home for more than 10 years and West is an el­derly woman. Low New­ton is the high­est se­cu­rity prison for women in the coun­try and they had to send Den­nehy there.

“She’s one of the UK’s most dan­ger­ous in­mates. She said: ‘Send me there and I’ll f ***** g kill Rose West.’ Prison of­fi­cials took the threat se­ri­ously. They moved West to an­other prison be­cause they said it was a mas­sive se­cu­rity threat.

“Den­nehy can’t stand Rose and has threat­ened to kill her be­fore.

“When Den­nehy was told she was be­ing moved the first thing she said was, ‘I’ll kill that b **** .’”

West left the Cat­e­gory A prison on June 13 and was trans­ferred to New Hall jail in Wake­field, West Yorks.

Den­nehy, 35, known as one of the coun­try’s most no­to­ri­ous fe­male killers, is be­lieved to have ar­rived at Low New­ton the same day. She is serv­ing a life term for stab­bing three men to death in March 2013 in what be­came known as the Peter­bor­ough ditch mur­ders.

The thug also knifed two other men who were left fight­ing for their lives.

Psy­chi­a­trists later di­ag­nosed her with psy­cho­pathic, anti-so­cial and emo­tional in­sta­bil­ity dis­or­ders.

In an interview ear­lier this year with the Sun­day Mir­ror, Den­nehy’s daugh­ter, Shi­anne Tre­anor, re­vealed how she learned her mother was a monster by googling her name.

The 19-year-old said: “I was told noth­ing about my mum and I wanted an­swers. She de­serves to spend the rest of her life in prison.

“I’ma sorry for the vic­tims. I can’t imag­ine what they went through.”

West was jailed life in 1995 for her part in 10 mur­ders, in­clud­ing that of her eight-year-old step-daugh­ter Charmaine. Hus­band Fred, 53, who had buried some of bod­ies in their gar­den in Glouces­ter, hanged him­self in jail while await­ing trial for 12 mur­ders.

West pre­vi­ously served her sen­tence at Bronze­field jail but was moved to Low New­ton in 2008 for her own safety af­ter a plot was dis­cov­ered to bat­ter her with pool balls in a sock.

She and 35-year-old Den­nehy are the only two women in Bri­tish pris­ons serv­ing whole life sen­tences since the death of Myra Hind­ley in 2002.

When she was told she was mov­ing the first thing she said was, ‘I’ll kill that b **** ’ SOURCE ON DEN­NEHY THREAT TO ROSE WEST IN LOW NEW­TON JAIL
