Blenheim Beast: 'Highly dangerous'
Thu, 05 Jul 2012 12:30p.m.
The Department of Corrections is applying for extended monitoring of the rapist known as the Beast of Blenheim for 10 years beyond the end of his prison sentence.
Stewart Murray Wilson appeared via video link in the Christchurch High Court today.
He was convicted in 1996 of the rape of five women and girls as well as bestiality and is due to be released from Rolleston prison in September.
The parole board considers Wilson highly dangerous and likely to re-offend upon his release.
It has repeatedly denied him parole, but cannot legally keep him in prison past the end of his sentence.
The parole board is also applying for GPS monitoring of Wilson which will be decided later this month.
