A teacher suspected of killing another man and eating pieces of the victim’s body has gone on trial in Berlin.
The 41-year-old man is accused of meeting the victim on an online dating website a few hours before killing him and eating parts of his body.
The victim was a 43-year-old mechanic.
After the killing, which occurred last September, the accused allegedly chopped up the victims body in his apartment and spread parts of it around the city.
Police were searching for the missing man for weeks before bones were found in a forest in North Berlin and the accused was tracked down with the aid of sniffing dogs.
The trial is expected to last until mid-October.
