Charles Sobhraj Conviction Will Not Be Reviewedon December 6, 2011 in Serial Killers by Brian Combs
The Nepalese Supreme Court has rejected a request to review their previous ruling that rejected Charles Sobhraj’s appeal of his conviction of the murder of Connie Joe Bronzich in 1975. Sobhraj is serving a life sentence.
Sobhraj who has avoided justice and escaped jails all over the world, is believed to have killed more than twelve people all over Southeast Asia. His motivation was not sexual or sadistic, but rather a need for attention and to live a lavish lifestyle.
He served a 21-year sentence in India for homicide, which by all reports was comfortable and leisurely. When he released, he retired to Paris, where he lived as a celebrity.
In September 2003, he returned to Kathmandu, Nepal, where he was wanted for murdering two tourists in 1975. He was recognized by a journalist, and arrested a few days later.
