THE murderer of Lancashire solicitor David Edwards is to be featured on a television show about female killers.

The father-of-one was stabbed to death at his home in Parkers Wood Close, Chorley, by his new bride Sharon Edwards, 42, who had previous convictions for attacking male partners.

A post mortem examination found the criminal defence solicitor, who was 51, had around 60 injuries, including other stab wounds.

Although they had only been together just over a year, his friends and colleagues had witnessed a catalogue of injuries and incidents.

Deadly Women, which airs on the Investigation Discovery channel, is aiming to tell the story behind Mr Edward’s death in its 10th season which airs later this year.

The show explores the psychological motivation behind why some women commit homicide and aims to create a greater awareness and understanding of the effects of such crimes.

Edwards is serving a 20-year life sentence after being found guilty of murder.
