In a bizarre series of events, a woman of Moroccan descent not only killed her lover but also chopped him off before cooking and serving his remains to Pakistani workers in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Prosecutors say she confessed to police, calling it a moment of ‘insanity’, BBC quoted the local media as reporting.
The incident took place three months ago, they say, but the crime was only recently discovered when the victim’s brother found a human tooth inside her blender at their home in the city of Al Ain, which sits on the border with Oman.
The 30-year-old suspect will go on trial pending an investigation.
According to a local daily The National, she killed the victim after he told her he was planning to marry someone else from Morocco. She had been in a relationship with him for seven years before the murder.
Police have not revealed how the victim was killed, but said his girlfriend had served up his remains as Machboos, a traditional rice and meat dish, to some Pakistani nationals working nearby.
Police carried out DNA tests on the tooth and confirmed it belonged to the victim after his brother went to them to report the incident.
According to police, the woman first told the brother that she had kicked the victim out of the home. But, she later collapsed and admitted the killing under police questioning, according to Gulf News.
The accused has reportedly been sent to hospital for mental health checks.
