A Siberian policeman who raped and killed women after offering them late-night rides has been found guilty of dozens more murders, making him Russia’s most prolific serial killer of recent times.

A court in the city of Irkutsk found Mikhail Popkov guilty of 56 murders between 1992 and 2007, sentencing him to a second life term.

He was already in prison after being convicted of killing 22 women in 2015.
