German cannibal is ‘perverted but sane’

23 January 2004

KASSEL – Self-confessed gay cannibal Armin Meiwes, 42, is perverted but sane, a psychiatrist told the trial Friday.

Testifying in court Friday in Kassel, Germany, Georg Stolpmann said Meiwes suffered from a serious psychological abnormality, but he was responsible for his actions in the legal sense of sanity.

The psychiatrist’s view concurred with that of a sexologist who had earlier testified at the trial.

Meiwes claims his victim, a Berlin engineer, requested to be castrated, killed and eaten. He is accused of murder for sexual gratification.
