Carranza, 38, who brutally murdered her husband and a lover in 2008 after they failed to get her pregnant, is being moved to a special centre in Asten, Austria.

Officials are citing the danger she poses as the reason.

She killed both men, cut them up with a chainsaw and hid them in an ice cream freezer at the parlour she owned, masking the smell with air freshener, Metro reports.

The Mexican-born-Spaniard will be housed at a facility currently holding 91 male prisoners, with 13 female inmates en route there.

The facility — featuring a lounge and TV area — allows for free movement and has single and double rooms, along with cooking amenities.

Court psychologist Heidi Kastner, who testified during the earlier trial, said that Carranza was accountable for her actions and that she had a high chance of relapse, Metro writes.

The psychologist had also suggested therapy would not work for the killer.

In a joint statement, her lawyers, Rudolf Mayer and Werner Tomanek, said, “It is important that our client can finally be comprehensively treated.”

Mayer and Tomanek are ultimately seeking to get Carranza moved to a prison in her native Spain. However, the inmate bears the burden of having to prove herself “cured.”
