Professor cuts off wife's lips, eats them

2012-05-31 15:00

Stockholm - A professor who believed his young wife to be having an affair allegedly cut off her lips in a fit of jealousy and ate them, a report said on Thursday.

"He cut off her lips and ate them," Swedish daily Aftonbladet quoted an unnamed source close to the case as saying.

"He doesn't seem to regret anything. He thinks she is the one who has offended him," the source added.

The man, an associate professor at Sweden's prestigious Karolinska Institute whose name was not given, was reportedly being held on suspicion of attempted murder, according to the report.

"She is of course not doing well, neither psychologically nor physically," the woman's lawyer Ingela Ekman Hessius told Aftonbladet.

Serious injuries

The lawyer, who was in court on Thursday and could not be reached for comment, told the paper her client had suffered "very serious injuries. The doctors have not yet said whether they can fix this or not".

The attacker, who has now been ordered to undergo a psychiatric evaluation, reportedly had several children from a first marriage, which had ended only weeks before he married his current wife, a much younger woman.

According to Aftonbladet, he had recently begun to suspect that she was having an affair and had allegedly decided to punish her by disfiguring her.

"He didn't want the lips to be able to be sewn back on," the unnamed source said, explaining why he had eaten them.

    What's up with cannibalism?maybe we are fed human blood from these fast food places and it seems more and more normal to eat each other. That seems like the only logical reason to me,why else?

      And earlier a woman got arrested for biting her dog and an elderly lady. I think we may be facing a zombie apocalypse. It's either the T-virus by Umbrella corp or maybe I should just quit Resident Evil games...

    This is wrong,abuse against women is huge world wide. Question is 'why is he disfiguring her'?, again Did he got the reason why he cutt-off his wife's lips? Every human being has got the right to be dignified or respected. He does deserve to be sentenced according to offence he commited.
