According to The Telegraph, a man who won an award in the UK which named him “Mr. Gay,” is now on trial for reportedly killing a man and eating parts of his body flesh.
Anthony Morley, who worked as a chef, was arrested last April for the murder of his friend Damian Oldsfield, whose flesh was recovered by the police from Morley's kitchen.
The Leeds Crown Court heard that the two men arranged to meet at Morley's house in the evening of April 23rd.
Morley apparently cooked a meal they both ate and retired to the bedroom.
Police said sexual activity ensued, following which Morley allegedly killed his acquaintance with a knife.
The court heard that six pieces of cooked human flesh, identified as being from Oldfield's body, were found on a chopping board.
Andrew Stubbs, prosecutor in the case, said: “From a chopping board on one of the kitchen units, six pieces of cooked flesh, which had been seasoned with fresh herbs and fried in olive oil were recovered. The flesh was human in origin. A further piece of cooked flesh, which appears to have been chewed, was recovered from a bin bag in the kitchen.”
Morley denies murdering Oldfield and told the police when he was arrested that someone had tried to rape him.
The trial continues.
