Domestic Violence Psycho Katherine Knight

Domestic Violence Psycho Katherine Knight published on

Here’s a nice example of the kind of thing that women supposedly don’t do. The next time some idiot claims domestic violence committed by females is not only rare but of a mild nature, remember the name Katherine Knight.

Back in 2000, Katherine Knight, an Australian woman with a history of violence towards her partners, stabbed her de-facto husband John Price 37 times, skinned and decapitated the corpse, then baked his buttocks and made stew out of his head.

Knight  then sat the flayed and decapitated corpse at the dinner table, and set two places for  Price’s children, each with plates containing their father’s baked flesh. Knight may also have attempted to eat some of Price’s flesh, but apparently that was too much even for her and the “steak” ended up on the lawn instead.

God only knows why an apparently decent man like John price got himself mixed up with such an animal, but it sure as hell wasn’t that they had much in common, Price generally being seen as a really nice bloke who was liked even by his ex-wife!

Knight was sentenced to life in prison without parole,  the first Australian woman to receive such a sentence  – though it’s hard to believe that it took this long for  an Australian woman to do something bad enough to be deserving of such punishment.
