Broadmoor for occult woman

(First Edition)

Tracy Barrett, 20, was sent to Broadmoor after a court was told she took part in an occult killing, inflicting multiple stab wounds on 59-year-old Ian Clark with a set of six steak knives last December.

However, the victim was an eccentric loner who also dabbled in black magic, Reading Crown Court was told, and it was possible Mr Clark had caused the fatal wound himself.
