Warning: Distressing and graphic content. Watch the video above: Katherine Knight murder. On the kitchen stove was a human head sitting in a pot amid vegetables - a ghastly braise. Plated on the kitchen table were what appeared to be steaks, presented with vegetables. In the lounge room was a human body — skinned by someone with expertise. The victim had been stabbed at least 37 times — the ferocity of the attack made it difficult to count the number of wounds. Many were deep. Vitals like the lungs, liver, kidneys and aorta were hit.
The gynocentric media constantly trumpet the radical feminist line that males are violent killers, responsible for the majority of domestic viiolence. The story of sadistic killer Katherine Mary Knight may redress this imbalance somewhat. Then carefully selecting a sharpening steel and a long boning knife from her selection of butcher's knives, Knight began honing the knife until it was razor sharp, in preparation for the grisly task ahead. During the day, John Price, reacting to death threats, had warned police and sought an Apprehended Violence Restraining Order against his wife, a person with a long history of domestic violence against previous partners. Her first marriage ended when first husband, David Kellet, fled in fear of his life. Knight would regularly fly into violent rages over nothing in particular, assaulting her husband with her fists, kitchen appliances and anything else she could lay her hands on.

Katherine Mary Knight born 24 October is the first Australian woman to be sentenced to life imprisonment without parole. Knight stabbed Price to death, skinned him, then put his skin on a meat hook and cooked his head and parts of his body with the intention of feeding them to his children. Katherine Knight was born and raised in an unconventional and dysfunctional family environment. Barbara and Jack had four sons before Barbara began an adulterous relationship with Ken Knight, a friend and co-worker of her husband. The Roughan and Knight families were well known in the conservative rural town, and the affair caused a major scandal. Local backlash forced Barbara and Ken to leave Aberdeen and move to Moree. None of her four sons went with her; the two older boys continued to reside with their father, while the two younger sons were sent to be raised by an aunt in Sydney.
