A killer who admitted to carrying out a “horrific” rape two years before murdering a student will be sentenced today at the Old Bailey.
Jason Dockrill, 46, was convicted of the “sadistic and sexual” murder of 23-year-old University of East London student Suvi Aronen in March 2003.
He is currently serving a life sentence with a minimum 25-year jail term for the murder of Ms Aronen whom he sexually assaulted and killed near Wanstead Common in March 2003.
The unemployed fitter was linked to another attack on a stranger in a park in November 2001 following a cold case review and faces sentencing at the Old Bailey today following an adjournment in July.
He has pleaded guilty to rape and two counts of indecent assault.
