Nearly 20 years ago, Kathleen Folbigg was sentenced to 40 years in jail for the murder of three of her children, and the manslaughter of her fourth. She was described as Australia’s worst female serial killer.
But what if the system got it wrong?
Jane Hansen is the Sunday Telegraph’s senior reporter and the host of the podcast Mother’s Guilt - which examines Kathleen’s crimes. And on No Filter this week she joins us to discuss Kathleen’s story and why now, over 150 world-renowned scientists are petitioning for Kathleen’s release.
