Among those featured are a woman who beat her teenage daughter to death over a trivial domestic incident, a steel worker who viciously stabbed to death two people then barricaded himself in his Scunthorpe home, and a policeman who strangled his wife and set up the crime scene to make it look like the work of an intruder.
