Since 1973, Knight had been in several relationships. All of those failed due to her being violent and even attempting to kill all of them. At one point, she spent a few months in a psychiatric hospital. Years after she was released, she met John Chillingworth. While in the relationship, Knight was having an affair with Price. Although the latter had two children who lived with him, their relationship had no complications. He worked as a miner and made good money, which kept Knight comfortable.

Eventually, Knight asked Price to marry her, which he declined. She became violent and got Price fired from his job, resulting in him kicking her out. Although the two got back together, things were never the same. Knight stabbed him, which resulted in a superficial chest wound after to an argument. To keep his kids safe, he filed a restraining order against her.

Price was sleeping in their home one night when Knight took a butcher knife and stabbed him 37 times. According to All That’s Interesting, a site for curious people who want to know more about what they see on the news or read in history books, she decapitated him and cut up pieces of his body to cook in a dish with potatoes, pumpkins, beets, zucchini, cabbage, squash, and gravy.

The police found out the gruesome crime after Price’s coworkers reported that he didn’t show up for work. They found Knight in the kitchen with Price’s head, boiling in a pot of vegetables on the stove. She is now imprisoned at the Silverwater Women’s Correctional Center in New South Wales with no chance of parole. Knight maintains her innocence and refuses to accept responsibility for her actions.
