(Newser) – German prison authorities are being slammed after a convicted rapist and murderer killed his lover during an unsupervised 6-hour conjugal visit. Two knives and a monkey wrench were found next to the woman's corpse when guards opened the "love cell" after the couple's time was up, Der Speigel reports.

The inmate, who had been in jail since 1991 for raping and killing a 9-year-old girl, slashed his wrists but survived after emergency surgery. Prison authorities say they allowed him to have unsupervised visits with the woman, who fell in love with the inmate after writing to him in jail, because they wanted the relationship to have a chance after his release next year. "We definitely didn't think he was capable of that," said the prison director.

"We definitely didn't think he was capable of that," What the fuck! You didn't? 'cause I don't work with prisoners and even I KNOW that he's more than capable. This human sludge raped and killed a 9 year-old girl and then had just killed this woman he was having this "visit" with. And why the fuck did they save him? And why was he slated for release any time in the near future after committing such a heinous crime against a child? "2 knives and a monkey wrench"? Either he had inside help in assassinating this poor woman, or this circle-jerk of a prison director is so incompetent as to make him a serious danger to the public he's supposed to be protecting. Maybe criminal charges are in order. Not only was this a bad idea, it seems this piece of shit wasn't even deserving of the conjugal visit he so tragically botched. It makes me sick to my stomach when those lacking even simple toddler-level common sense are allowed in such positions of power. I say put a bullet in this prisoner's head and make the prison director do it, since he's the reason this man has gone on to kill again.

In 1989, Richard Ramirez, "The Night Stalker" serial killer was convicted of committing 13 gruesome murders among a total of 43 hideous crimes. A freelance magazine editor with a bachelor's degree in English and an I.Q. of 152 named Doreen Lioy wrote him 75 letters during his incarceration. They were married on October 3, 1996, in San Quentin Prison while Ramirez was on Death Row awaiting execution. All high profile murderers get fan mail and love letters from women, including Charles Manson. The moral of the story?: Some women just have a screw loose. The death of the one in Germany who wanted sex with a child rapist and murderer only underscores this fact. This is NO loss to society! The world gene pool just inched up a notch...
