A SEXUAL predator who kidnapped and killed pretty travel agent Stephanie Hammill has been sent back to his country to serve the rest of his sentence there.
Former Huddersfield University student and Greek national Ioannis Revenikiotis was jailed for 11 years in October for the kidnap and manslaughter of the 20-year-old.
Under an extradition agreement, Revenikiotis, 29, has been handed back under the care of the Greek government.
Stephanie's parents, Brian and Jane Hammill, along with her fiance James Garland, have said they hope he suffers while behind bars.
In a joint statement they said: "He is a very dangerous individual with a warped mind, and we are glad that he is no longer in this country. We hope he will never be allowed to come back.
"The main thing we want to say is good riddance to him.
"We understand that conditions in Greek prisons can be a lot worse than those in Britain, and we hope the years he has to spend in jail there will be as harsh as possible.
"He has never shown any remorse for taking Stephanie from us in such sudden and terrible circumstances. He is a real menace to women."
At about 4.35pm on Thursday detectives from Wakefield, who helped bring Revenikiotis to justice, escorted him on to a plane at Heathrow Airport to hand him over to officials from Greece.
A West Yorkshire Police spokesman said: "Revenikiotis will continue to serve his sentence in Greece under UK sentencing rules and will not be eligible for any early release criteria under the Greek prison system."
Stephanie was abducted in Wakefield as she walked home from a night out with Mr Garland.
She hailed what she thought was a taxi and got in.
Revenikiotis was the driver and he sped off as her leg dangled from the back door of his black Mercedes.
Minutes later she either jumped or fell from the car, fearing Revenikiotis was going to sexually attack her.
She fell into the path of an oncoming taxi and died almost instantly.
Revenikiotis, who had been living in Dewsbury, went on the run, fleeing the country, about a month after Stephanie died on November 29, 2003.
Detectives, led by Det Chief Insp Mark Ridley, tracked him down and brought him back to the UK from Greece in February, 2006.
