Triple murderer Joanna Dennehy is ‘besotted’ with a former university lecturer she met in her prison gym
Triple murderer Joanna Dennehy is ‘besotted’ with an ex-convict she met in her prison gym.
The killer was even handed a ring by former university lecturer Alexandra Crouzieres that led to the latter being banned from visiting Dennehy for three months.
Sources say Dennehy, 35, and 37-year-old Crouzieres, who was inside Surrey’s Bronzefield women’s jail for racially abusing a doctor and attacking three police officers, started an ‘intense friendship’ behind bars.
Dennehy murdered Lukasz Slaboszewski, 31, her landlord and lover Kevin Lee, 48, and her housemate John Chapman, 56, before dumping their bodies in ditches near Peterborough in March 2013.
However, according to Crouzieres, who has recently split from her husband, the pair are not an item.
She told the Sun: ‘She’s just one of many friends I made in jail. When I go there we chat about nails and shoes and clothes and celebrities.’
In reference to the ring, she added: ‘She liked my rings so I said, ‘Do you want one’? I gave it to her. It was only cheap.’
Dennehy became only the third woman in British legal history to be handed a whole life sentence after she confessed to triple killing, with the judge branding her ‘cruel, calculating and manipulative’.
Dennehy tried to kill two more men in a random act of violence following her three murders.
She later pleaded guilty to three counts of murder and two counts of attempted murder.

After she was arrested, Dennehy told a psychiatrist she had started killing to ‘see how it would feel, to see if I was as cold as I thought I was…then it just got more-ish.’
In CCTV, she’s heard saying: ‘Attempted murder and murder, that’s nothing. That’s like going down for Sunday roast. Easy’
Later, she said: ‘Attempted murder and murder, could be worse. I could be big, fat, black and ugly.’
Dennehy, was handed the ‘life means life’ sentence at the Old Bailey in February 2014.
