UNITED STATES: SERIAL KILLER, JEFFREY DAHMER SENTENCED TO LIFE IN PRISON

Please read the Disclaimer


Serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer, who cannibalised and had sex with his male victims, was sentenced by a Milwaukee court on Monday (February 17) to 15 life terms, after telling his victims' families he understood their "rightful hate". The sentencing hearing for the confessed murderer who dismembered and ate parts of as many as 17 young men, included tearful, angry statements from relatives of several victims. On Saturday (February 15) a jury rejected Dahmer's insanity plea and, before sentencing, Dahmer read a statement pleading forgiveness and acknowledging his crimes. Rita Isabel, the sister of victim Errol Lindsey, had to be restrained by court deputies from attacking Dahmer, who sat impassively at the defense table. Dahmer had pleaded guilty but insane to the 15 murders for which he was sentenced. He also confessed to two other slayings in Ohio and Milwaukee but they were not part of the trial
