A woman dubbed \'The Ice Cold Killer\' who allegedly murdered her husband and lover at the ice cream parlour she ran in Vienna has been allowed to marry in prison.Goidsargi Estibaliz \'Esti\' Carranza, 32, allegedly decapitated and then chopped the bodies

Ice Cream killer rejected from jail in Spain

A Spanish woman who is serving two life sentences in an Austrian prison for murdering her husband and boyfriend in Vienna has had her request to be moved to a prison in Spain refused. Estibaliz C. will continue to be held in Austrian women's prison, Schwarzau, an psychiatric institute.

She had requested the move to the Spanish institution to be nearer to her two-year-old son, who was born whilst she was in custody but now lives in Spain with his grandparents. According to her lawyer, high costs were making it difficult for the family to visit Estibaliz C. in Austria.

The request was denied by Spanish authorities because they said they had no room for a long term prisoner in a psychiatric institute.

Estibaliz C. shot her husband and boyfriend in the Viennese district of Miedling in 2008 and then tried to hide the bodies by decapitating them and storing the body parts underneath the ice-cream parlour she owned

She was only found out in 2012 after building works in the neighbouring cellar uncovered the remains.

A court official determined at the time that there was around 30 percent chance that Estibaliz C. would commit another crime and it was decided she should serve her sentence in a psychiatric institute.
