This horrific story has us simmering mad!

Chef David Viens was convicted Thursday of murdering his wife, Dawn, and then literally BOILING her body for four days!

David pled not-guilty to murder, maintaining his wife's death was accidental. He claims he tied her to the bed one night in 2009 and duct taped her mouth closed but was surprised to find her deceased in the morning.

The slow cooking of her body, however, the Chef freely admits to masterminding. After letting her marinate for days, he disposed of her remains through the kitchen of his El Lay County restaurant, Thyme Cafe!!

Most of the remains, we should say…

Apparently the 39 year-old man kept the skull as a souvenir! GROSS!

He told investigators:

"[The skull was] the only thing I didn't want to get rid of in case I wanted to leave it somewhere… [It's] in my mother's attic."

In the midst of David's trial last year, he threw himself off an 80 foot cliff in Rancho Palos Verdes. His suicide attempt was unsuccessful, but it forced him to watch from a wheelchair as the jury returned a guilty verdict.

Yelp gives Thyme Cafe three stars.

    Re: Squirrel – It may be old but it's the first time I heard it. I work too much. Anyway, not being hard-hearted here or anything, but did anyone think the dish was exquisite? We have to wonder if this is the only person he has cooked and served at his restaurant, were there more or was it the beginning of a new cuisine? He looks so harmless, but those like him frequently do…

    People always ask me why I don't want to marry. These types of stories is why I'd rather stay single. So many psychos and child molesters out there. And they look normal until they snap.
