Flesh eating police officer sentenced after he murdered, butchered man

A German police officer who killed a man and ate his intestines and manhood has been sentenced to prison.

Cannibal Detlef Guenzel

There has been widespread outrage as a former German police officer, Detlef Guenzel, was sentenced to a mere eight and a half years in prison for murdering and dismembering a man and eating the intestines and manhood, 'to satisfy his cannibal fetishes', reports Daily Mail.

The court heard that in 2013, Guenzel murdered and dismembered Wojciech Stempniewicz while listening to pop music.

He then buried the body parts in his garden.

While Stempniewicz’s family was hoping Guenzel received a maximum sentence of 15 years, prosecutors were only seeking a ten-year sentence.

In the end, prosecutors backed off their demand because the victim, Stempniewicz, 'had said he wanted to die'.

Guenzel met Stempniewicz on a website for people who enjoyed cannibalism. They contacted each other via email, text message and telephone before eventually setting up a face to face meeting.

That meeting took place on November 4, 2013, when Guenzel picked up his victim from the train station and took him back to his house.

Guenzel then strangled Stempniewicz to death using a rope before dismembering the body.

During sentencing, Judge Birgit Wiegand said:

"He was found guilty of murder and disturbing the peace of the dead."

Prosecutors uncovered a 50 minute long video that shows Guenzel chopping up the corpse while listening to music.
