Serial killer given seven life sentences

A self-confessed serial-killer received seven life sentences on Monday after he pleaded guilty to killing five foreign women and the children of two of them in a murder spree that went undetected for three years.

Nicos Metaxas, a 35-year old captain of the National Guard, pleaded guilty to a total 12 of charges relating to the premeditated murder and abduction of the seven victims.

They came from Romania, the Philippines, and Nepal and were murdered between September 2016 and July 2018.
