SPEEDBOAT killer Jack Shepherd has been moved to a notorious prison dubbed the ‘Monster Mansion’, we have learned.
He is now being held at HMP Frankland Category A prison – alongside evil criminals such as child murderer Ian Huntley and serial killer Levi Bellfield.
Sarah Everard’s killer, former police officer Wayne Couzens, is also being held in Durham County Jail – where the speedboat killer is said to be keeping his “head down”.
Jack Shepherd was sentenced to six years in 2018 for the manslaughter of Charlotte Brown – who he was on a date with when she died.
Charlotte, from Clacton, Essex, died on December 8, 2015, after the faulty speedboat she was on crashed into the River Thames.
It was said to be a first champagne date with Shepherd, who managed to get to safety when the boat crashed, hooked up and rolled over.
Charlotte was pulled from the water unconscious and unresponsive after being ejected from the boat.
A post-mortem examination revealed that she had died from cold water immersion.
Speaking of the killer in prison, a source told the Mirror: “He spends his days writing to friends and family and getting along with other inmates.
“Prison was a humiliating experience for him.”
Web designer Shepherd, from Devon, was first treated as a witness after the crash.
But he was ultimately convicted after a jury heard the boat was traveling more than twice the limit when it capsized, and also had a number of faults including faulty steering.
Shepherd then fled the UK to Georgia in March 2018 and was sentenced in his absence in July.
He eventually surrendered to Georgian authorities but still maintained his innocence, saying Charlotte was driving when the speedboat crashed.
Shepherd was jailed for a total of 10 years after finally admitting to attacking a bartender with a bottle before fleeing.
He was told he was to serve four years in prison for ‘illegally and maliciously’ smashing ex-soldier David Beech in the face with a bottle of vodka.
The sentence for the attack is in addition to the six years Shepherd is already serving for the manslaughter of Charlotte Brown and six months for fleeing the country.
A source said he thought Georgia “would probably be a more welcoming country for him than Britain”.
Ian Huntley – also in the same prison – murdered two 10-year-old girls in 2002 after luring them to his home in Soham, Cambridgeshire.
He was convicted of murder and sentenced to two life terms, with the High Court later imposing a minimum sentence of 40 years.
Levi Bellfield is a serial killer and sex offender – and will now also be one of Jack Shepherd’s fellow inmates.
He was convicted in 2008 of the murders of Marsha McDonnell and Amélie Delagrange and the attempted murder of Kate Sheedy, and he was sentenced to life imprisonment.
