The body of the victim, a driver, was found dead in early October in a burnt-out van in Tulangbawang district, Lampung province.
Police later arrested Efendi and his wife in connection with the murder. According to the police, Efendi,30, had ordered his wife to contact the victim and set up a meeting. But when the victim arrived, he found only Efendi, who then allegedly stabbed him to death, cut off his genitals and set the vehicle on fire. Efendi admitted killing the man after discovering his 20-year-old wife, Nuriah was not a v1rgin on their wedding night in September and being told of the alleged r@pe, but insists he acted alone.
“I was so outraged,” Efendi told reporters after his arrest last month, adding that deciding to eat the victim’s g3nitals was “to cure my heartache.” Police say that after murdering the man, Efendi took home the victim’s severed genitals, ordered his wife to cook them, and the pair then ate them together. “The case is still under investigation but we strongly suspect that this is a premeditated murder.”
Sulistyaningsil, a local spokeswoman told AFP. The husband is accused of carrying out the murder, while police believe the wife acted as an accomplice.
