Ex-cop in can­ni­bal­ism web­site killing back in dock

The Myanmar Times - - World -

A Ger­man ex-po­lice of­fi­cer con­victed of mur­der­ing a will­ing vic­tim he met on a web­site for can­ni­bal­ism fetishists goes on trial again af­ter the ver­dict against him was over­turned on appeal. Detlev Guen­zel, 58, was last year sen­tenced to eight years and six months in jail for killing Pol­ish-born Wojciech Stemp­niewicz in 2013. Guen­zel had cut the body into small pieces be­fore bury­ing them in his gar­den. There was no ev­i­dence that he ate any part of his vic­tim. But the Fed­eral Court of Jus­tice over­turned the ver­dict, say­ing his sen­tence was too le­nient.
