A British woman pleaded guilty to the murders of three men whose bodies were found dumped in ditches.

Joanna Dennehy, 30, from Peterborough, who became the subject of a nationwide hunt after police released a picture of her with a distinctive tattoo of a star on her face, entered guilty pleas during a pre-trial hearing at the Old Bailey in London.

She admitted killing Kevin Lee, 48, Lukasz Slaboszewski, 31, and John Chapman, 56. The men were found with multiple stab wounds in the Cambridgeshire Fens close to Dennehy's home. She also admitted to the attempted murders of two other men and preventing the lawful and decent burial of the three murder victims.
