A 24-year-old British man who was morbidly fascinated with US serial killer Ted Bundy has been sentenced to a minimum of 30 years ad 190 days, authorities said.

Cody Ackland, an amateur rock musician, murdered an 18-year-old woman in "a sadistic and prolonged attack," Devon and Cornwall Police said in a press release.

He struck his victim, 18-year-old Bobbi-Anne McLeod, on the head with a claw hammer at a bus stop in Plymouth, England, on November 20, 2021, according to police.

Ackland then abducted her into his car, drove her into a forest, and repeatedly attacked her before murdering her, police said.

Police added that he stripped McLeod and dumped her body in the undergrowth on a densely wooded lane before joining a party with friends.

He confessed to the murder, turning himself into the police three days later, before pleading guilty to murder at Plymouth Crown Court on April 5, 2022. He was sentenced on May 19.
