Danilo Restivo guilty of teenager murder
Friday 11 November 2011
A man with a fetish for cutting off women's hair has been convicted by an Italian court of the 1993 murder of a teenager.
The verdict came months after he received a life sentence in Britain for a similar murder.
Danilo Restivo, who was tried in absentia, was sentenced to 30 years in prison for the death of 16-year-old Elisa Claps, whose decomposed body was found last year on the roof of a church in Potenza, Italy, where she was last seen 18 years ago.
In June, Restivo was sentenced in England to life without parole for killing and mutilating his neighbour Heather Barnett in Bournemouth in 2002.
The ritualistic murder - in which Ms Barnett's breasts were cut off and strands of hair placed in her hands - echoed the Claps murder.
Restivo, who is serving his sentence in the UK, denied the charges.
