Women Kills Man, Serves Him to Kids

By and

SYDNEY, Australia?A court gave life imprisonment Thursday to a woman who murdered her partner before skinning his body and carving it up to serve to his children.

Katherine Mary Knight, 45, was a “very dangerous person,” said Justice Barry O’Keefe and ordered her never to be released.

Knight, a slaughterhouse worker, pleaded guilty last month to murdering John Price, 44, at his home near Newcastle, 120 miles north of Sydney in February of last year.

She stabbed Price at least 37 times, decapitated him, skinned his body and later included his flesh in meals for the son and daughter of the deceased, accompanied by vindictive notes, O’Keefe said. Prosecutors did not suggest to the court that the children ate the meal.

Knight claimed she could not remember what happened in the house.
