Episode 98 - Sally Challen: A Case of Coercive Control

One Saturday morning in November 2010 Sally Challen walked into the kitchen and hit her husband Richard in the head with a hammer. She hit him over 20 times. In the trial that followed Sally was painted as a possessive, jealous woman who murdered her husband in cold-blood. This year, in 2019, Sally won a land mark appeal to have her conviction overturned as a fresh defence was shaped around her mental state owing to the years of emotional and psychological abuse she had suffered at the hands of her husband.
