An Austrian convicted murderer known as the “Ice Cream Killer” is being transferred to an all-male prison because authorities have deemed her too dangerous to be locked up inside a woman’s prison.
Estibaliz Carranza, 38, was convicted of killing her husband and another man in 2008 before hiding their remains in an ice cream freezer. She was sentenced to life in prison in 2012.
According to the New York Post, the Mexican-born-Spaniard will be moved to a facility that houses 91 male prisoners. Thirteen female prisoners, including Carranza, deemed too dangerous will also be moved there.
Some 45 nurses, 18 therapists, four doctors, and eight prison guards will also head there.
In a joint statement, lawyers Rudolf Mayer and Werner Tomanek said, “It is important that our client can finally be comprehensively treated,” according to the New York Daily News.
They are trying to get her transferred to her native Spain, but they noted that would only be possible if she’s considered cured. They said she’s currently studying business while in prison.
But court psychologist Heidi Kastner, who had testified during another trial, said that Carranza was accountable for her actions and had a high chance of relapse, reports said.
She also suggested therapy would not work for Carranza.
