    Woman who cooked husband loses appeal


    THE woman convicted of one of Australia¿s most gruesome murders has had her appeal against the severity of her sentence dismissed.

    In February 2000, Katherine Knight, a former abattoir worker, repeatedly stabbed her de facto husband John Price, before skinning him, beheading him, and preparing his body parts as a meal for his children.

    The following year, she was sentenced to jail "for the term of her natural life" - the first woman in Australia to be imprisoned without the prospect of parole.
    Now 50, Knight had appealed to the NSW Court of Criminal Appeal.Supreme Court for a reduction in her sentence, on the grounds that the judge who presided over her trial had not taken into account the physical abuse she had suffered at the hands of Mr Price.
    But Judge Peter McClellan said Knight had shown no remorse for the crime and would be a risk of re-offending if released.
    "The psychiatric evidence indicates that her personality is unlikely to change in the future and if released, she would be likely to inflict serious injury, perhaps death, on others," Justice McClellan said in his written judgement.
    Knight stabbed Mr Price 37 times with a butcher's knife before skinning him and hanging his hide from a meat hook in their lounge room.
    She then decapitated him and put his head in a pot on the stove, baked flesh from his buttocks and cooked vegetables and gravy as side dishes to serve to Mr Price's children.
    Police found the macabre dinner before the adult children arrived home.

    She's "Sick Animal" for sure. I wonder if she hated the kids more than the husband. Ric

    I think this woman has been horribly misunderstood, and just needs another chance to prove what a good person she is. I think Hillary Clinton should go bring her back, and make her part of her household to show what a great person she is.

    I wonder is she saw Monkeyman's CD first or if she already had knowledge of butchering?

    However, what woman hasn't had a macabre fantasy of this scenerio when her mate has done something particularly stupid or mean? I just don't know anyone else who acted upon it before the fantasy was displaced by that same mate who did something incredibly sweet and loving. Lesson - count to ten before you begin butchering! LOL

    Oh the poor dear. I mean she was abused by that guy. Seems like she deserves a medal.

    Yeah right. Same old thing you hear about all the time. She was too scared, too lazy or too dumb to leave him. Though she wasn't any of those when she hacked the guy up.

    I can't see where she didn't get what she deserved. Too many times there are excuses made why they don't leave the abuse. The killing of a person is one thing. This is way beyond that. Damn skippy she will do it again. To do this you have to be way damaged in the mind and once to that point there is hardly ever a turnback point. She has got to be totally nutz by now. So let her sit it out for the duration and she can try to teach cooking class to the other inmates.

    I just wonder if for desert was she going to serve a Kidney pie? :D
