(NEWS.COM.AU) — A WOMAN in eastern China has murdered her husband and boiled his corpse to cover her tracks after he abused her and her daughter, a report says.

The woman drugged the man, her second husband, and tortured him for three days in June by withholding food and water and beating him, causing his death, said a report on government-backed news portal Anhui News on Saturday.

She then dismembered the corpse with a saw and boiled the parts in a pressure cooker to hide the evidence, the report said. It did not detail how she disposed of the cooked flesh afterwards.
