Killers : Sisters

1 x 50'

In October 2006, the murder trial of sisters Charlotte and Linda Mulhall unfolded in the central criminal court. The two sisters sat impassively in the dock while the jury heard how they had brutally killed their mother's boyfriend in an alcohol and drug-fuelled frenzy. The Judge described the murder as the most depraved case he had ever presided over.

Killers: Sisters tells the story of Charlotte and Linda Mulhall who murdered Farah Swaleh Noor, dismembered his body and disposed of it in a canal in Dublin. The pair subsequently became known as the "Scissors Sisters". While the story of the so-called "Scissor Sisters" began on a Sunday in March 2005, for Linda and Charlotte Mulhall the seeds of what happened were sown years earlier. The real story of the Mulhall sisters goes back to their childhood - and that is where this story begins. This documentary gives the full account of their background, the crime, the investigation and subsequent trial of the sisters, and analyses the circumstances behind this most unique crime and what it says about modern-day society.
