Her shocking act made the internet explode - Bubble & Squeak Murder: The Killing of David Jackson


Full Episode

Penelope Jackson and her husband David's marriage didn't end in divorce, but at the hands of a knife. On the eve of Valentine’s Day 2021, a private birthday celebration in a sleepy coastal town ended in bloody murder. During the trial later that year, recordings of the call and video footage taken from police bodycams of the subsequent arrest were beamed around the world. Sixty-six-year-old Penny Jackson, a retired accountant, had murdered her ex-army officer husband, David Jackson, with a paring knife; coldly stabbing him on three separate occasions before calmly phoning the emergency services as he lay bleeding to death on their kitchen floor.
