Killer Sally is one of the most recent real crime documentaries on Netflix. The documentary investigates Sally McNeil’s 1996 murder conviction.
On Valentine’s Day in 1995, ex-professional bodybuilder Sally McNeil was charged with second-degree murder for shooting and killing her husband, fellow bodybuilder Ray McNeil. McNeil said that her husband had a history of beating her and had attacked her the night she shot him twice with a shotgun.
The jury disbelieved McNeil’s claim of self-defense and decided in favor of the prosecution. Killer Sally nevertheless asks McNeil to tell her story in her own words. The series was created by Oscar-winning director Nanette Burstein (Hilary and On the Ropes).
Killer Sally intends to shed light on the truth of the case and the regrettable sensationalization of it by the media at the time. McNeil was the punchline of numerous late-night jokes and skits. Due of her physique, the media would refer to her as a “monster” and a “muscular bride.”

Once released on parole, Sally relocated to the Veterans Transitions Center in California, where she met her third husband, Norfleet Stewart, in a VTC support group. Some of their wedding footage is shown in the Killer Sally documentary series.
