Eurydice Dixon killer faces life sentence - PM

The man who raped murdered young Melbourne woman Eurydice Dixon in Carlton North has been sentenced to life in prison.

Todd killed Dixon, 22, in the early hours of June 13 a year ago in Melbourne's Princes Park.

Justice Stephen Kaye said Todd's actions were "perverted and depraved" and "craven and sadistic" as he delivered his sentencing remarks that took nearly two hours.

Those close to the victim say the sentence sends the right message, but argue that more needs to be done to stop violence against women in the long term.

On Monday, a judge described his crimes as "totally and categorically evil".

Ms Dixon had been walking home after performing a late-night show at a city club in June previous year. "There is no evidence [the act] troubled your conscience at all".

Todd was sentenced to life imprisonment, with a non-parole period of 35 years.

Outside court after the sentence was passed, Euridyce's father Jeremy said: 'I am very pleased there is a killer off the streets.

In her Instagram stories, the Sanju-star made an appreciation post and extended her support to Zareen. She thanked Anushka for her support and reposted Anushka Sharma's story.

"What I wish for Jaymes Todd, and what I think Eurydice would also wish, is that he gets better and. realises what he has done", he said.

"Eurydice herself should be remembered as her friends will remember her - for her wit, her courage and her kindness, not for her death".

Justice Kaye told the court he was satisfied beyond reasonable doubt that Todd had meant to kill the "vulnerable, defenceless and helpless" Ms Dixon when he attacked in the secluded park.

"You had the advantage of surprise", he said.

Mourners pay their respects during a vigil held in memory of murdered Melbourne comedian, 22-year-old Eurydice Dixon.

He was diagnosed with sexual sadism disorder while in custody.

The court found that Todd's autism did not play a major role in Todd's obsession with violent types of pornography or the violent assault and murder.

Justice Kaye said Todd's "dark and sick fantasy" and sexual sadism disorder drove the crime, not his mild autism.
