In the eighth episode of British Murders, I tell the story of English serial child killer Amelia Dyer.
Amelia Dyer is suspected of murdering more than 400 infants between 1880-1896; however, only six deaths were attributed to her.
She received the death penalty and was hanged in June 1896.
Amelia practised baby farming, a standard method of earning a living in late-Victorian Era Britain.
