Midweek Sport - - HOT N HORNDY -

THREE-YEAR-OLD Robert “Bobby” Tufts was elected Mayor of Dorset, Min­nesota, in Au­gust 2012 CON­FESSED: Zverev chopped up vic­tim A MAN ac­cused of mur­der, pae­dophilia and can­ni­bal­ism gouged out his vic­tim’s eye, boiled it and ate it with his 12-year-old “girl­friend”.

Arkady Zverev, 22, also con­fessed to putting the sev­ered head of mur­dered Alexan­der Popovich, 21, in a mi­crowave and turn­ing it on the high­est set­ting for three min­utes.

He told a court in Rus­sia that he and his al­leged ac­com­plice – only known as Va­le­ria – had eaten the man’s cooked brains.

Zverev pleaded with the judge from a me­tal cage at Kirovsky Dis­trict Court, near St Peters­burg, to ban­ish jour­nal­ists from the court, say­ing: “I do not want fame.”

The court was in closed ses­sion due to the age of the school­girl, who state in­ves­ti­ga­tors say took part in killing and eat­ing Popovich.

Zverev was de­tained in cus­tody for two months to al­low fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tions of the macabre case – in which he has con­fessed to ax­ing and chop­ping up his vic­tim.

He faces charges of mur­der, abus­ing a dead body and sex with a mi­nor, say law en­force­ment of­fi­cials.

Va­le­ria was re­manded in a hos­pi­tal for one month for psy­chi­atric tests but will not face charges as she is be­low the age of crim­i­nal re­spon­si­bil­ity.

Be­fore the court hear­ing it was re­vealed that she had told po­lice of­fi­cers she had taken part in the killing and can­ni­bal­ism.

She told de­tec­tives how she used a fry­ing pan to cook and eat Mr Popovich’s heart but that she had found the taste “too sweet” and that his brains “turned out to be much more tasty”.
