Prison Officer Ruth Oliver today tells how she fell under the spell of evil killer Ken Callaghan

A female prison officer caught holding hands with an evil sex killer says she was being groomed by the monster and could easily have been his next victim.

Ruth Oliver, 45, is now living in fear of depraved Ken Callaghan, 44, being released because the murderer and rapist knows where she lives.

“Ken Callaghan groomed me, I was vulnerable and he used me. I know I could have been his next victim,” said a distressed Oliver, who resigned from the Prison Service last week.

“You don't know what he's like. He is very domineering and controlling. I was under his spell.”

Oliver's cosy relationship with steroid-using body-builder Callaghan was exposed by Sunday Life in April.

Our reporter filmed her shopping at a Tesco store with the beast, who was out on day release at the time, and watched as she held his hand.
