I read about Karla Homolka several months back on Carolyn’s site and ended up reading about the case via a link I found on her site.

It was a very disturbing case in which she basically supported her husband in his rape and murder of several women.

She was convicted and given a reduced sentence of 12 years because she agreed to give evidence against her husband.

Her release has sparked a wave of contraversy in Canada especially as she is now fighting to keep her identity and location secret.

I was surprised to see that it even made the National BBC News a few days ago, which prompted me to write about it here. It was quite an indepth report about the case.

It appears we are not the only country whose penal system is in dissary and need of bringing into the 21st century.
