Speedboat killer Jack Shepherd has reportedly been transferred to Category A prison where he will serve the remainder of his sentence alongside former police officer Sarah Everard’s murderer Wayne Couzens and other notorious inmates.

Shepherd, 33, is now being held at HMP Frankland, according to the Mirror.

Other prisoners in the prison in County Durham include Soham murderer Ian Huntley and serial killer Levi Bellfield.

“He spends his days writing to friends and family and getting along with other inmates. Prison has been a humiliating experience for him, ”said a source.

Shepherd was sentenced to six years in prison after being convicted of grossly negligent manslaughter following the death of Charlotte Brown when her speedboat capsized during a champagne date on the Thames in 2015.

Ms Brown, from Clacton, Essex was on her first date with Shepherd after meeting on dating site OkCupid.

In July 2020, Shepherd was sentenced to 78 days of his 10-year prison sentence for time spent awaiting extradition after fleeing the UK to Georgia.

Three appellate judges have said the 78 days Shepherd spent in custody pending his extradition to Georgia should count as part of the prison sentence he is serving.

Shepherd’s trial in July 2018 learned how he bought the 1980s boat on Gumtree and tried to impress other women with it.

But her first date with Ms Brown ended in tragedy when the 14ft Fletcher Arrowflyte GTO, which was riddled with flaws, struck a log and capsized, throwing them into the river near the Wandsworth Bridge.

He later sparked outrage by appealing the conviction while on the run in Georgia – and he received funds to do so.
