There are two sides to this coin. One is how it should be handled if you're hewing close to the source material, and the other is that you don't have to be beholden to the Dresdenverse canon in the first place if you have better ideas. I'll start with how it "should" be done, if we're assuming a more-or-less faithful adherence to the Dresdenverse and ...

I'd say they drop to Zero Refresh and become an NPC. They chose to become a monster. This is why having a bigger buffer of Fate Points is important. That said, it would be a short-term problem as a Warden would likely show up and behead the NPC for breaking a law thus making the fact they're an NPC now a moot point. Rule of Thumb: Don't break the Laws of ...
