Man killed wife. Then he ate her
A frail 79-year-old man who recently emigrated from China pleaded not guilty yesterday in the brutal slaying of his elderly wife.
On Thursday, police in the quiet New England town of Shrewsbury, Massachusetts found Jieming Liu in a rocking chair ‘covered in blood’ on his hands, mouth, and face in his modest condominium.
According to police, his 73-year-old wife, Yuee Zhou, was found in a rear bedroom with severe injuries to her arm, lying in a pool of blood.
Liu’s son told police that his father – who is only 5ft2 and 75 pounds - had no idea of what he was doing at the time, and kept repeating: ‘This is not your mother.’
Court records state he kept telling his son, ‘This is not your mother,’ in Mandarin Chinese.
He was charged with murder in conjunction with the gruesome death.
Mr McHugh told the court: 'He may have been eating her flesh.'
