DUBAI – Authorities in the United Arab Emirates have arrested a Moroccan woman accused of killing her lover and serving up his remains to Pakistani workers.
The National newspaper in Abu Dhabi reports that prosecutors in the UAE say the woman was arrested on suspicion of killing her boyfriend of seven years after he told her of his plans to marry another woman from their country.
The woman, who is in her 30s, killed her boyfriend three months ago, they say, but the crime was only recently discovered when a human tooth was found inside her blender.
Authorities say she cooked his butchered remains for a traditional rice and meat dish known as machboos.
She confessed to police, calling it a moment of “insanity”, state-owned newspaper The National reports.
Police say the woman will face trial after a full investigation is complete. She has reportedly been sent to a hospital for mental health checks.
