I had just fed her two adult mice the day before when I had a female amelanistic Cal King try to eat her mate. She had his head and several inches of his front body down when I discovered them and separated them. Fortunately he was still alive.
After I separated them I waited a couple days and fed her four adult mice, which she devoured greedily, and a couple hours later I put the male in with her. She looked like a zeppelin but she didn't try to eat him and they bred. Always after that in the following years I made sure to feed her two mice, wait one or two days then feed her two more, before letting them breed and she never attacked him again. But I always watched them to make sure nothing bad happened again.
