Serial sex killer Russell Williams has reached an out-of-court settlement with some of his victims, according to a report in Maclean’s magazine.
Maclean’s reports that Williams reached a deal with two civil lawsuits: one filed by Williams’ first sexual assault victim, known only as “Jane Doe,” and the other launched by the mother and father of Jessica Lloyd, who was killed inside Williams’ cottage.
Both lawsuits were filed against Williams and his wife, and called for several million dollars.
Williams still faces a $7-million lawsuit by a victim he assaulted soon before he committed his first murder.
