A Moroccan woman has been arrested after she allegedly killed and cooked her lover – before serving him up to workers.
The unidentified woman is alleged to have killed her boyfriend of seven years after he told her that he planned on marrying someone else.
The suspect is said to have served up the victim’s remains as machboos – a traditional Gulf dish of rice and meat similar to biryani – to Pakistani workers in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Officers say the woman killed the man three months ago but the crime was only recently discovered after a human tooth was found inside her blender by the victim’s brother, who searched their home in the city of Al Ain.
DNA tests showed the tooth belonged to the woman’s partner and she was arrested before reportedly confessing.
She initially told officers that she had kicked her lover out of their home but later confessed, describing the killing as a moment of ‘insanity’, according to The National.
The accused has reportedly been sent to hospital for mental health checks.
Police have not said how the victim was killed.
