Plot Synopsis

Using dramatic re-creations and first-person interviews, criminologist and behavioral analyst Dr. Casey Jordan explores the stories of women who stabbed their significant others -- sometimes killing them -- while revealing what events or motivations led these women to cut the men out of their lives. Each 60-minute episode highlights a single story, including: Jamie Czerniawski, whose marriage to Charlie begins to disintegrate following their appearance on a reality show about their family life, with the couple ultimately brawling in the kitchen, where Jamie grabs a knife and plunges it into her husband's arm; a mother of four, repeatedly abused by her boyfriend, who stabs him to death in a fight for her life; and many more women who used cutlery to end their relationships.
