Ipswich murders suspect pleads not guilty

The man charged with killing five Suffolk women at the end of last year has appeared in court today.

Ipswich resident Steven Wright, 48, appeared at the town's crown court this afternoon, where he pleaded not guilty to five counts of murder.

Mr Wright is charged with the murders of Gemma Adams, Tania Nicol, Anneli Alderton, Paula Clennell and Annette Nicholls. The women all worked as prostitutes in the Ipswich area.

The bodies of the five women were all found naked in the Ipswich area in early December 2006, prompting a massive police investigation to find the perpetrator or perpetrators.

None of the women were sexually assaulted prior to being killed and none showed signs of struggling with their killer.

The murders provoked widespread media attention at the time and resulted in a major police operation involving officers from across the country.

The first body, that of 25-year-old Ms Adams, was found on December 2nd, more than a month after she was last seen alive.
