A woman in Morocco has been arrested and accused of killing her lover and cooking his remains as part of a rice dish. The woman was apprehended after her lover’s tooth was found inside the blender she used to cook the dish, that she served to some workers.
The woman’s horrific crime came to light soon after the deceased’s brother reported him missing to the police in Al Ain, in the United Arab Emirates, last week. Suspicious, the brother went to visit the woman with whom the missing man had been in a relationship with for seven years.
When confronted, the woman initially denied the crime but then confessed to the killing and reportedly said that she murdered her lover in a moment of “insanity.” According to the local press, the woman was triggered after her boyfriend dumped her and told her that he was planning to marry someone else.
The woman confirmed to the police that she wanted revenge after her lover ended their relationship. She revealed that she butchered his body and used a blender to mince his flesh before cooking the remains as part of a traditional Gulf dish ‘machboos’ – a rice dish similar to India’s briyani.
According to the local National AE publication, the arrested woman is set to appear in court. Investigations are ongoing.
