Serial killer Rose West, 65, moved out of jail after new inmate, triple murderer Joanna Dennehy threatened to 'stab her to death'
Joanna Dennehy was jailed after murdering three men with a zombie knife in 2014 while Rose West was jailed for killing and burying her victims at her notorious 'House of Horrors' in Gloucester
Serial killer Rose West, 65, was transferred out of her cell at a maximum-security Low Newton prison after triple murderer Joanna Dennehy threatened to kill her when she moved into the jail.
West had reportedly lived in the cell for more than 10 years, with insiders describing her setup as "cushy", The Daily Star reports.
However, 35-year-old Dennehy allegedly threatened to stab West to death, prompting jail bosses to take action fearing a murder inside the facility.
Cambridgeshire mother Dennehy, who has reportedly threatened to kill West before, was jailed after murdering three men with a zombie knife "for fun" back in 2014 and plotting six more murders.
Meanwhile, West and her husband reportedly killed their victims and buried them at their notorious 'House of Horrors' in Gloucester.
Dennehy recently told prison guards, "I'll kill that b****", referring to West.
West was apparently disappointed about losing her well-settled lifestyle at the prison, per insiders.
She is currently serving time for killing at least 10 girls and young women with her husband Fred.
"Rose West lived a life of luxury in there," a source told Mirror. "She's got it made because she's in the lifers' unit. She doesn't even leave her cell and they bring food to her."
According to the source, West "was in tears" when prison guards packed up her belongings.
"It's been her home for more than 10 years and West is an elderly woman," they said.
The insider said that Dennehy allegedly told guards, "Send me there and I'll f****** kill Rose West."
"Prison officials took the threat seriously," the source added. "They moved West to another prison because they said it was a massive security threat."
West was moved from HMP Bronzefield in 2008 after prison authorities learned of a plot to batter her with pool balls stuffed in a sock.
As of now, Dennehy and West are the only two women in Britain serving whole life sentences after Moors murderer Myra Hindley died in jail in 2002.
Fred West, who claimed to have taken the lives of up to 30 women, was awaiting trial for 12 murders when he hanged himself in his jail cell on New Year's Day 1995.
