Cannibal teacher who killed and ate his 'boyfriend' for sexual satisfaction goes on trial in Germany



A 41-year-old teacher accused of killing another man and eating the victim’s body to satisfy cannibalistic sexual desires, has gone on trial in Germany’s capital.


Prosecutors say the man on trial met his victim, a 43-year-old mechanic, on an online dating website a few hours before the September killing in 2020, the German news agency Deutsche Presse-Agentur reported. They said there was no indication the victim had agreed to be killed.


The accused, named Stefan R, sat in silence as the charges were read out. R is accused of killing 43-year-old Stefan T in the hope of consuming parts of the alleged victim’s body and deriving sexual satisfaction from the act.


His lawyers told the court that R did not wish to testify and sought to suspend the trial on the basis that the public prosecutor’s office had not made all the evidence in the case available to the court.


The sitting judge said the court would examine the matter and cancelled Thursday’s planned hearing. The trial will now continue next Tuesday.


The case was first uncovered last November after human bones were found in a park in the north-eastern Pankow district of Berlin.Latest Post
