SERIAL KILLER IVAN MILAT IN SYDNEY HOSPITAL

Serial killer Ivan Milat is expected to remain at a Sydney hospital after being transferred from Goulburn’s supermax jail.

He was transferred to the Prince of Wales Hospital in Randwick on Monday afternoon and is being held in a secure annex where inmates are treated.

The ABC reported the 74-year-old has undertaken a series of hunger strikes in prison over the past decade, resulting in extreme weight loss.

It’s believed Milat will undergo a diagnostic procedure and is expected to return to jail in the coming days.

Milat murdered seven backpackers whose bodies were found in makeshift graves in NSW’s Belanglo State Forest in the 1990s.

He was sentenced to seven consecutive life sentences in 1996.
