Speedboat killer moved to ‘monster’ prison with Ian Huntley and Levi Bellfield

Jack Shepherd, dubbed the "speedboat killer", has been relocated to HMP Frankland where he will serve alongside some of the UK’s most notorious criminals.

The Durham prison, nicknamed the "monster mansion" is home to the most dangerous prisoners in the UK, including terrorists, murders, and rapists.

The facility near Brasside, which was built in the 1980s holds male prisoners over the age of 21 who are deemed high risk and given a sentence of between four years and life.

Former web designer Shepherd will now see out the remainder of his sentence here alongside evil criminals like Soham murderer Ian Huntley, serial killer Levi Bellfield and Sarah Everard’s killer, ex-police officer Wayne Couzens.

In 2019, the 33-year-old was handed a six-year sentence for manslaughter by gross negligence following the death of 24-year-old Charlotte Brown who died in 2015.

As well as a separate four-year stint for attacking a barman.

A source told Mirror Online that Shepherd is keeping his dead down at the Co Durham jail.

They said: "He spends his days writing to friends and family and getting on with the other inmates.

"Prison has been a humbling experience for him."

Shepherd had met Charlotte via the dating website OkCupid. The pair had gone for dinner at The Shard in London before he offered her a ride on his defective speedboat.

Charlotte, from Essex, drowned after being thrown from the boat, hitting a log.

Shepherd went on the run in Georgia and missed his trial but was extradited.

He had set up home with ex-TV journalist Maiko Chanturidze in the former Soviet republic.

The source said: "Jack still very much misses Maiko and Georgia.

"He believes it is likely to be a more welcome home for him than Britain."
