Serial killer Joanna Dennehy took this chilling “selfie” photograph while she was on the run from police.

The image was shown to jurors during the trial of her two alleged accomplices and shows the 31-year-old murderer posing and sticking out her tongue in the back of a Vauxhall Astra, moments before she selected and stabbed her fourth and fifth victims.

Witness Mark Lloyd, who was in the same car as Dennehy and her alleged accomplice Gary Stretch, told Cambridge Crown Court that Dennehy had been driven by a thirst for blood.

Dennehy had already killed three men in Cambridgeshire when she randomly targeted the two dog walkers in Hereford. Both men suffered multiple injuries but survived.

Other images show Dennehy posing with a jagged knife and her tongue protruding, and one of her flashing her bra and exposing what look to be self harm scars on her stomach.

Her alleged accomplice Stretch is photographed mimicking her pose and making an obscene gesture to the camera.

Dennehy had bragged to friends that she and Stretch were like Bonnie and Clyde, a jury heard.
