A WOMAN who boasted to cops she planned to kill a man she met on­line, eat his heart and leave a note on his body for of­fi­cers has been banged up for 18 years.

Amy Brown, 24, lured the vic­tim to a pub on Jan­uary 29, told him she was a se­rial killer and stabbed him in the chest.

She was sen­tenced af­ter plead­ing guilty to at­tempted mur­der.

The vic­tim, who met Brown af­ter he cre­ated a Craigslist post seek­ing com­pan­ion­ship, was able to es­cape and seek help at a chemists, cops in Lyn­nwood, Wash­ing­ton, said. He suf­fered a col­lapsed lung but sur­vived.

The 29- year- old man told po­lice he’d cre­ated the pro­file seek­ing a woman “for friend­ship and pos­si­bly dat­ing.” Brown re­sponded to the post and agreed to meet, and they ended up at the Rodeo Inn in a room paid for by the man. SE­RIAL CHILLER: Brown planned to carry out a string of killings, she told cops

The man and Brown were ly­ing on the bed talk­ing and Brown asked sev­eral times if he was a se­rial killer. She then climbed on him, yelling “Well, I am!” and stabbed him.

When ar­rested, she told of­fi­cers she planned to kill the man and eat his heart and that she had writ­ten a note to leave on his body “ex­plain­ing that she planned to kill again.”
