Ian Brady and Myra Hindley, a British man and woman who murdered several children in the 1960s. Brady and Hindley were lovers, and they were called the Moors Murderers because they buried the murdered children in the moors (=wild areas of high land) in the North of England. Before they killed the children, they tortured them (=treated them very cruelly), and these events caused great shock and anger in the UK.
