Maxine Carr granted life-long anonymity

Soham murderer Ian Huntley’s former girlfriend Maxine Carr was today granted an indefinite order protecting her new identity by a High Court judge.

Soham murderer Ian Huntley’s former girlfriend Maxine Carr was today granted an indefinite order protecting her new identity by a High Court judge.

The order granted by Mr Justice Eady, sitting at London’s High Court, was not contested by the media – and Carr was not present.

The judge said the order was necessary to protect “life and limb” and the psychological health of Carr.

In December 2003, Carr, 27, was convicted of conspiring to pervert the course of justice with Huntley, who killed schoolgirls Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman.

She provided a false alibi for Huntley by lying to police about her whereabouts on the weekend in August 2002 when the 10-year-olds were murdered.
