ONE of France's most prolific serial killers goes on trial this week, but the spotlight will be on his wife after revelations that she made a 'diabolical pact' to help him murder young women. The court will hear evidence of how Monique Olivier, 59, helped her husband Michel Fourniret lure young women into a van so that he could kidnap and rape them.
Fourniret, 65, is being tried for the murders of seven young women. His wife is charged with one murder and as an accomplice in six others.
She has told police that she witnessed various rapes and murders and has admitted to gagging one girl to silence her screams. It is alleged that Fourniret would sometimes ask her to examine girls before raping them to make sure that they were virgins.
