December 15, 2021

A man who murdered two women in Kent more than 30 years ago has been told he'll die in prison.
David Fuller killed Wendy Knell and Caroline Pierce in Tunbridge Wells in 1987.
The crimes went unsolved for decades until advances in DNA technology led to the 67-year-old's arrested at his home in Heathfield in East Sussex last December.
As officers searched the property they discovered evidence he had also abuse the bodies of almost 100 women in mortuaries at hospitals where he worked as an electrician.
At Maidstone Crown Court he was sentenced to 12 years for those crimes to run concurrently with two whole life orders.
