A SADISTIC killer who decapitated a teenager has been sent back to Britain to live in a hotel at taxpayers’ expense.
Christopher Clark Jones served 15 years after he and a pal stabbed their victim 133 times then used his head as a bowling ball and puppet.
Now the 36-year-old is living in Britain after being released on parole in Australia last month.
He has been put up in a £100-a-night hotel and given spending money to live on.
Jones whiles away his days eating fry-ups, smoking cigarettes and drinking beer.
A source said: “He’s one of Australia’s most notorious murderers who should have spent the rest of his life behind bars.
“But he’s now living life as a free man in London without a care in the world.
“He quite openly talks about his past.
“He has no remorse and is a cocky type.
“It’s unbelievable and terrifying that people can mix with this guy without knowing what he’s done.”
In 2007, Jones, then 23, and James Patrick Roughan, 27, were sentenced to life for murdering 17-year-old Morgan Jay Shepherd in a case that shocked Australia.
Morgan was killed after a drunken row and his head was cut off with either an axe, knife or saw.
His torso was found buried in a shallow grave and his severed head nearby on a tree stump.
The killers joked about playing with his head and got another two years from the Brisbane court for interfering with the corpse.
Tyneside-born Jones had spent all but a year of his life in Australia but never applied for citizenship.
When he was freed, his visa was revoked and he was flown back to Britain.
Had he stayed in Australia he would have been on parole all his life but in Britain he will simply be put on an offenders’ register.
Australian minister Peter Dutton said: “As a UK citizen, he didn’t deserve to stay in our country.”
The Home Office said: “When a British national is returning to the UK having spent serious convictions abroad, the police will put measures in place to protect the British people.” The Met Police said it does not discuss individual arrangements.
