UK: Yorkshire Ripper will die in jail
YORKSHIRE Ripper Peter Sutcliffe today lost a bid to go to the highest court in the land to challenge an order that he can never be released.
The serial killer’s latest attempt to have his “whole life” tariff overturned was rejected by Court of Appeal judges.
He had wanted to take his case to the Supreme Court.
The Lord Chief Justice, Lord Judge, announced today that his application had been rejected.
A High Court judge ruled last year that the serial killer of 13 women must serve a “whole life’’ tariff.
