CANNIBAL PAEDO ATE MAN’S EYEBALL Perv boiled it up for snack with his ‘girlfriend’, 12
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”.
