TORONTO - A published report says sex-killer Russell Williams has reached an out-of-court settlement with some of his victims.

Maclean's reports financial settlements were reached in lawsuits launched by Williams's first sexual assault victim, "Jane Doe", and another by the family of murder victim Jessica Lloyd.

Maclean's says the settlements were announced in a statement released by the victims' lawyer Michael Pretsell.

Maclean's quotes the statement as saying the suits, which also named Williams' ex-wife Mary Elizabeth Harriman, have been resolved. The report says the actions against Harriman will be dismissed.

Williams, once a rising star in the Canadian Forces at CFB Trenton in eastern Ontario, was sentenced to life in prison in October 2010 after pleading guilty to the murders of Lloyd and Cpl. Marie-France Comeau.

Lawyers for Williams and the victims could not be reached for comment on Monday night.

Maclean's reported that another lawsuit against Williams remains active.
