The aunt of convicted serial killer Joanna Dennehy said the person she knew as her niece was dead and vowed have nothing to do with her from now on.
Patricia Moth said Joanna had been an "angelic young girl" until she was fourteen and had burned her books at school, vowing never to go back.
She expressed sympathy with the victims' families and explained: "Me, personally, if someone had done that to my family, I would be devastated. And how they must feel. It has all been about Joanna. There are people grieving out there."
The long-term partner of Joanne Dennehy, who murdered three men, has spoken of her manipulative streak and occasional violent outbursts.
Joanna Dennehy obtained sexual excitement from inflicting pain, a psychiatrist concluded, after she pleaded guilty to three murders.
