An elderly woman was arrested on charges of murder after allegedly killing her husband and cooking her body parts, police in France said.
Longwy Police said that the 71-year-old woman was arrested last week, after being accused of cooking her 80-year-old husband’s heart, nose and genitals.
According to the police investigation, the retired woman beat her husband to death with a kitchen utensil used to grind spices. She cooked parts of his body in a pot in the kitchen.
Police did not say if the woman ate the body parts. The suspect’s lawyer said that the woman suffers from delusions.
“Obviously, this was done in a fit of madness,” the lawyer said. The woman is being held in the psychiatric unit of a prison.
A judge ordered a psychiatric evaluation to determine of the woman can stand trial.
