Summary The Night Nurse<br />The former partner of a nurse who killed two elderly patients in a northern NSW care home has revealed how she boasted years earlier about how she knew how to "commit the perfect murder". He helped put her behind bars after he read of a chillingly similar crime in the news. "Yeah, yeah straight away I knew," Richard, whose identity has been protected, told Sunday Night. By that time, yeah. I'd seen vindictive, I'd experienced it so I knew she knew no limits." Had the deaths of 82-year-old Marie Darragh and Isabella Spencer, 77, at NSW St Andrews Aged Care Home not occurred in the same night Megan Haines may never have been caught. They were both injected with fatal doses of insulin and appeared to have had massive strokes. When Richard met Megan Haines in Melbourne in 2008 he didn't realise that her disturbing theory of "the perfect crime" was, in fact, a plan.<br /><br />Girls Night Out<br />It was in March 2014 that Rebecca Weller last had a drink. She had woken the following day at 5am, staring at the ceiling with her dehydrated head pounding ... and wondering why she kept doing this to herself. "If you'd told me back then that life would be better on this side, I wouldn't have believed you," she tells Sunday Night. "How would I have fun? How would I relax? How would I socialise, without wine?" But Rebecca says if she hadn't tried a sobriety experiment for herself, she would never have known her true potential. "I'm not going to lie, the first 90 days were tough," she says. "Every night at 6pm, when I'd usually pour myself a glass of wine, I didn't quite know what to do with myself. I felt irritated and out of sorts. I wanted to feel happy and confident in my choice not to drink. Forget FOMO, I wanted to feel empowered by the changes I was making." Eventually, Rebecca realised how much sobriety enhanced her clarity, creativity and productivity - not to mention confidence and self-worth. And she hasn't looked back for a second. Now Rebecca is helping other women do the same via her online coaching program, Sexy Sobriety.<br /><br />Take It To The Limit<br />As he prepares to tour solo in Australia, Eagles' singer/songwriter Don Henley says he is still processing the sudden death of frontman Glenn Frey. The band were in the early stages of planning another reunion tour in March 2016 when Glenn went to hospital for gastrointestinal tract surgery and he died unexpectedly from complications. Glenn was 67. "Yeah, still processing it, it has got to be processed for a long time," Don Henley says. "It hasn't even been a year yet, you know ... It happened rather suddenly. There had been some health problems for a while but we thought they were under control and it just happened quickly." Despite being one of the most successful bands of the '70s - peaking in 1976 with Hotel California - the Eagles' had a very public and bitter split in 1980, vowing to work again "when hell freezes over". It was 14 years before the old friends could put their differences aside and reunite for the aptly named Hell Freezes Over Tour.<br /><br />Long Shot<br />Aussie trick-shot sensations How Ridiculous have claimed back their world record from their American rivals after netting a basketball from 180m, and in just three tries. Last year, at a dam in Tasmania, the Perth trio made history by sinking a basketball from 126m, making global headlines and capturing millions of views on YouTube. But their triumph was short lived with US trick-shot rivals Dude Perfect quickly breaking their record with their own shot from a height of 162m in Oklahoma
