Man Eats Wife


A frail 79-year-old man who recently emigrated from China pleaded not guilty yesterday in the brutal slaying of his elderly wife.

On Thursday, police in the quiet New England town of Shrewsbury, Massachusetts found Jieming Liu in a rocking chair ‘covered in blood’ on his hands, mouth, and face in his modest condominium.

According to police, his 73-year-old wife, Yuee Zhou, was found in a rear bedroom with severe injuries to her arm, lying in a pool of blood.

Liu’s son told police that his father who is only 5ft2 and 75 pounds had no idea of what he was doing at the time, and kept repeating: ‘This is not your mother.’

At the arraignment yesterday in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts, Assistant District Attorney Michael D. McHugh told the court that police were notified around 4:30pm Thursday that a woman was not breathing.

When officers arrived to the condo, he said, officers found Liu drenched in blood and surrounded by pieces of his wife’s flesh.
