A prison officer had an affair with a brutal knife murderer nearly half her age at a notorious young offenders institution.
The two-month fling between Krista Rees, 36, and Tobi Peters, 20, at Aylesbury HMYOI was uncovered when suspicious colleagues found the inmate’s mobile phone, containing 120 texts between the two, in his cell.
Rees also had 27 phone conversations with Peters – sentenced to life in 2009 for the savage murder of young Lyle Tullock – reportedly tried to hide the affair by changing her mobile number on prison documents.
A police spokesman told The Sunday Mirror: ‘Peters was put onto a segregation wing as punishment for having the phone, where Rees visited him twice without permission.
‘A number of messages listed form the mobile number registered to Rees were in the phone address book under the name ‘Mrs Weirdo’.
‘Peters was spoken to by prison officers and told them he had been in a relationship for two months and she had provided him with the phone and paid for the credit on it.’
Rees, of Waddesdon, Buckinghamshire, who has refused to comment, admitted misconduct in a public office at Oxford Crown Court and has been bailed ahead of a sentencing hearing on October 8.
Peters and his fellow attacker, ballet dancer Damien Solowabe, stabbed Lyle, a 15-year-old aspiring lawyer, more than 10 times in a stairwell of a south London estate following a row over a mobile phone.
