Vampire truckie gets long stretch

A TRUCKIE who fancied himself as a vampire and kept women as sex slaves in his semi as he drove across the US has been sentenced to 20 years in jail. Timothy Jay Vafeades, 56, sexually assaulted and beat the victims daily after trapping them in his truck and forcibly grinding down their teeth, prosecutors said. Judge David Nuffer said the abuses the women said they had suffered were some of the worst things he had come across. One said her months- long ordeal began when she got into Vafeades's truck to go to dinner and he said, "I got you now. You are mine.”
