Jealous husband ate wife's lip 'on impulse'
A Stockholm-area professor charged with cutting off and eating his wife's lower lip has told investigators he planned to kill himself after the attack and that the decision to eat his wife's lip was made "spontaneously"."I didn't want to kill her. I wanted her to suffer for the rest of her life for what she had done," the 52-year-old man told police, according to the Expressen newspaper.
The man, who is a respected researcher at the Karolinska Institute north of Stockholm, stands charge with aggravated assault for the attack on his wife, which took place in May in the couple's home south of Stockholm.
According to prosecutors, the man was upset with his wife for requesting a divorce and flew into a jealous rage.
Following his arrest, he told police that his 32-year-old wife had repeatedly asked for a divorce and that he ultimately attacked her when she returned home from a trip the professor believed she had taken with her new lover. (...)
