Pair get life in jail for thrill kill of autistic teenager

  • Trudi Lennon and Jemma Lilley were given life in jail for murder of Aaron Pajich
  • The pair stabbed the autistic 18-year-old to death and buried him in backyard 
  • Judge Stephen Hall said the sadistic housemates killed Mr Pajich for pleasure

A serial killer-obsessed woman and her bondage-loving housemate have been given life sentences for murder. 

Trudi Lennon, 43, and Jemma Lilley, 26, stabbed Aaron Pajich, 18, to death and buried him in their Perth backyard in June 2016.

They were sentenced to life behind bars after facing the Supreme Court of Western Australia on Wednesday.

Judge Stephen Hall said the pair had violent fantasies about murder and death, and chose their autistic teenage victim because he was vulnerable, WA Today reported.

‘Neither of you had any reason or motive for wanting to kill a particular person,’ he said.

‘The idea of killing another person was something that excited both of you. You killed for your own pleasure.

‘This is a very serious case of murder… there are few if any cases in this jurisdiction which are comparable.’
