Beyond Bad is the shocking true story of Katherine Knight, the first Australian woman to be sentenced to serve out her life in prison. Her crime – the ritual slaying and skinning of her de facto husband for a cannibal feast – is the most gruesome ever committed in Australia. Knight, a 44-year-old abattoir worker, stabbed her de facto John Price 37 times, skinned his body, cooked his head, and served him up as a meal for his children. Beyond Bad explains what motivated Knight to commit such a heinous act and how it rocked the Hunter Valley town she lived in.
