Convicted Murderer. Brady, along with Myra Hindley, was convicted of killing 5 children in Greater Manchester, England, during the 1960s. The pair, dubbed the "Moors Murderers", carried out the killings from July 1963 to October 1965, sexually assaulting their victims and burying many of their bodies on Saddleworth Moor in the south Pennines. The couple's five victims were Pauline Reade, Keith Bennett, Lesley Ann Downey, John Kilbride and Edward Evans. Brady and Hindley were brought to trial on April 27, 1966, and on May 6, 1966, were found guilty. Both were jailed for life with a minimum recommended sentence of 30 years. When Brady was sentenced in 1966, the judge said he was "wicked beyond belief".
