Cannibal Prof Ate Wifes Lip

Kathryn Quinn

A cannibal professor who sliced off his wife's lip with a scalpel held it in front of her eyes and told her: "Now I am going to eat it so that you can’t sew it back on."

The 52-year-old academic from the world-renowned Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden, had flown into a rage after accusing his 32-year-old wife of cheating on him, a court heard.

Judges heard how she'd told her husband she wanted a divorce and was woken in the middle of the night with him straddling her, pinning her arms to the bed as he asked: "Has your boyfriend slept in our bed?"

When she said no, the court was told, he took it as conformation that she had a lover and attacked her with a scalpel hidden under the pillow.

The victim - who appeared in court wearing a surgical mask and sunglasses to hide her injuries - told police her husband made her watch him chewing on her lip before releasing her.

"I've felt incredibly awful since the attack," she said.

Her husband - charged with aggravated assault - told the court he was forced to "act desperately" by his wife's threat of divorce.

The trial continues.
