(The Local) A prominent researcher at Sweden’s Karolinska Instiutet is in custody for having cut off his wife’s lips with a knife and then eating them.

The man attacked his much younger wife in their home south of Stockholm after flying into a jealous rage over suspicions that his wife had been unfaithful, the Aftonbladet newspaper reported.

Prosecutors considered the attack to be so vicious that they requested the man be remanded in custody on suspicion of attempted murder.
