Believe it or not, he actually WASN'T on bath salts.
A 52-year-old college professor living in Stockholm, Sweden decided to cut off his wife's bottom lip because she wanted a divorce. He waited until she was asleep before making the incision with a scalpel, then proceeded to eat the raw flesh.
Sources say that "he did it so that she would never be able to kiss again." He reportedly said, "I'll get four years, but you're getting a life sentence."
Unfortunately, he was absolutely correct. Although plastic surgeons have taken a crack at repairing the damage, they've determined that it's permanent. His prison sentence, on the other hand, won't be. The crime carries a maximum penalty of 10 years behind bars, but a minimum of 4.
Ugh! Considering that's EXACTLY what he was expecting, we think he deserves a little more time for the horrific crime. Prosecutors wanted to charge him with attempted murder, but can't because "he helped her call police and remained there until help arrived."
We never thought we'd have to say this to the world, but STOP EATING PEOPLE!!!!
