Killer Ian Kay who tried to murder Yorkshire Ripper Peter Sutcliffe is back on Britain's streets

A KILLER who tried to murder the Yorkshire Ripper is back on the streets.

Ian Kay, 53, got a life sentence in 1995 for stabbing store boss John Penfold to death.


He was sent to Broadmoor after being diagnosed as a psychopath.

In 1997, he attacked Peter Sutcliffe with a pen — repeatedly stabbing at his eyes and leaving him blind in one eye.

Four psychiatrists warned he was an ongoing danger to the public.

He is thought to have been freed in October, on recommendation of the Parole Board after serving 25 years, to live in Oxfordshire — to the fury of John’s family.

Dad Michael, 76, of Chessington, Surrey, said: “He should have stayed in for life. The pain for us will never go away.”

Wife Madeline, 81, added: “He murdered John and then he attacked Sutcliffe. Is he really rehabilitated?

Kay knifed John, 21, in Teddington, South West London, in 1994.

He told docs after attacking Sutcliffe: “The devil told me to kill him.”

The Justice Ministry said he has “strict conditions”.
