Two Australian lesbian "vampire" lovers, Jessica Stasinowsky, 21, and 19-year-old Valerie Parashumti who drank blood and were sexually aroused by violence were sentenced to life in prison in 2008 for the brutal killing of British-born 16-year-old Stacey Mitchell. They bludgeoned Stacey to death with a concrete block, strangled her with a dog chain then celebrated with a kiss over her body. They dumped Stacey's body in a garbage bin. They have to serve a minimum of 24 years in prison.
