“I wanted to eat him but I didn’t want to kill him,” said Armin Miewes during his trial for “killing on demand,” which is not a new HBO service. Miewes, you’ll remember, killed and ate Bernd-Jürgen Brandes, a Berlin computer engineer he’d met on the internet. He’d been seeking someone to eat, and Brandes was likewise in the market for someone to eat him alive. Miewes’ earlier sentence of eight-and-a-half years was lengthened to life imprisonment today after a sensational retrial that upped the killing-on-demand charge to murder, the judge ruling that Meiwes had killed more to satisfy his sexual urges than to perform euthanasia. The complete gory details of the murder and cannibalism are at Spiegel Online.
