A 68 year old serial-killing 'Granny Ripper' who was caught disposing one of her victims,confessed to 11 murders in a gruesome diary.

Tamara Samsonova, 68, is thought to have beheaded and dismembered her victims in a reign of terror that lasted two decades.

The pensioner dubbed the 'Granny Ripper' entered details of her secret life in diaries which she kept in Russian, English and German, alongside black magic and astrological books.

She was arrested last week after being filmed by CCTV cameras near her home in St Petersburg removing the body of her latest victim in black plastic bag.

Now detectives suspect that the former hotel worker also ate some body parts she removed from the people she killed, chopping off their heads, arms and legs.

Samsonova is also suspected of murdering her husband, who she reported missing in 2005.

He was never found, dead or alive.

The 'Granny Ripper's' diary excerpts include a chilling confession of murdering one of her former lodgers.

'I killed my tenant Volodya, cut him to pieces in the bathroom with a knife, put the pieces of his body in plastic bags and threw them away in the different parts of Frunzensky district,' she wrote.

Detectives in Russia are refusing to release details of her diary until the multiple murder investigation is completed.

Amazingly, given the gravity of the charges against her, in her latest court appearance, Samsonova, seemed more concerned that journalists were there to report her case and that her neighbours in St Petersberg were going to find out what she is accused of.

After being remanded in custody, she told journalists:

'I knew you would come... It's such a disgrace for me, all the will know.

Later she blew a kiss to reporters.

When judgeRoman Chebotaryov asked her to address the court, she replied: 'It's stuffy here, can I go out?
