On December 17, 2003, after a six week trial, Soham school caretaker Ian Huntley was convicted of the murders of ten year olds Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman. He admitted killing the two girls and disposing of their bodies but denied murder, concocting in his defence a surrealistic scenario of an accidental drowning of Holly and a panicked trance state killing of Jessica. After his conviction, Huntley was exposed as a serial paedophile who had slipped through the net. He was described by police as a plausible, manipulative liar.
