In the mid-’60s, Ian Brady and Myra Hindley sexually tortured and murdered five children ages 10 to 16
Their crimes became known as the Moors Murders in England. Brady is in poor health, and he’s fighting to be removed from a secure hospital and sent to a prison in his native Scotland.
As the Guardian explains, Scottish prisons don’t force-feed inmates. Brady wants to be allowed to refuse food and die. He lost a legal fight on the matter in 2013, and he just lost another this week.
Brady’s longtime attorney will not be allowed to represent him.
