Cannibal story of the day

WARNING: If you just ate, you may want to wait a while before reading this one.

A 19-year-old German man (Ackermann) was accused of murder and cannibalism -- after police found and arrested him next to the mutilated body of his flatmate (Schweiber).

When Ackermann was found he had blood around his mouth and parts of the victim's tongue and brains had been prepared on a plate in the next room, police said.

Mr. Schweiber appeared to have been killed by a 10-kilogramme (22 pounds) dumbbell which cracked his skull. The body was slashed "from the throat to the genitals."

Police say the man "may" suffer from mental problems.
