(Scroll down for video) A man was arrested on charges of murder after allegedly killing his former girlfriend before eating her organs, police in Indiana said.

Now, a Clark County judge approved a charge of rape against 34-year-old Joseph Oberhansley.

Oberhansley was charged with murder and abuse of a corpse in the killing of 46-year-old Tammy Jo Blanton. Oberhansley allegedly told police that he broke into his girlfriend’s house, killed her and then ate her organs.

Since his arrest, Oberhansley has been held in a maximum security cell 23 hours a day in solitary confinement.

When Oberhansley was informed of the latest rape charge, he denied the allegations, saying in court that he has too much honor and integrity and is also too handsome to have sexually assaulted his former girlfriend.

Update: Clark County Circuit Court Judge Vicki Carmichael ruled that Oberhansley is not fit to stand trial.

Prosecutors vowed to rehabilitate Oberhansley and put him on trial at a later date.
