The leader of an international online paedophile ring killed in prison by inmates.

The leader of an international online paedophile ring was beaten to death in prison by fellow inmates.

Christian Maire, 40, was sentenced to 40 years behind bars in December after telling the judge “I am sick.”

Dad-of-two Maire ran an online sex scam operation, which involved nine men in different states in the US and exploited more than 100 girls nationwide.

After Maire was sentenced to 40 years, one victim reportedly said: “That’s basically life. And he’s gonna get the hell beat out of him.”

He was serving his sentence in Michigan and on Tuesday was in a fight involving seven inmates.
