FRANKSTON serial killer Paul Denyer is being investigated over claims he raped a fellow prisoner.
Police are currently interviewing Denyer over the alleged rape on April 14 at Port Phillip Prison.
The incident allegedly occurred when Denyer, who in 1993 killed three women in a hate-filled rage, raped a fellow inmate after what initially started as a massage.
Appearing via video-link before Melbourne Magistrates' Court, Denyer refused to face the monitor but told Magistrate Michelle Ehrlich he understood what the investigation was about and consented to questioning.

Magistrate Ehrlich granted police, from Footscray's sexual crimes unit, four hours in which to interview Denyer after investigators lodged a 464B application to question the suspect in custody.
Late last year, Denyer also faced an interview inside the maximum-security jail by homicide detectives over missing woman Sarah MacDiarmid, who disappeared in 1990.
He denied any knowledge of the MacDiarmid case.
