A woman has been charged with the murders of three men whose bodies were discovered in ditches.
Kevin Lee, 48, was found dead in a ditch in Newborough, Cambridgeshire, on March 30. A post-mortem examination found he died from stab wounds to the chest.
Lukasz Slaboszewski, 31, and John Chapman, 56, were found at Thorney Dyke, Cambridgeshire, on April 3. They had both been stabbed.
Joanna Dennehy, of Peterborough, who is in her early 30s, has been charged with the three murders, the Crown Prosecution Service said today.
Leslie Layton, 36, of Bifield, Orton Goldhay, has been charged with perverting the course of justice.
Robert Moore, 55, of Belvoir Way, Peterborough, has also been charged with assisting an offender in connection with the case.
Grace Ononiwu, the Chief Crown Prosecutor for the East of England, said Dennehy would appear at Peterborough Magistrates' Court at a later date.
