A southern California man whose wife's flesh was found cooking in pots on the stove at their home in Oceanside has pleaded not guilty to murder and other charges. Frederick Hengl, 68, was arrested after police were called to investigate a foul smell coming from the home he shared with his wife, Anna Faris, 73, a few blocks from Oceanside pier.
Investigating officers found parts of Faris' body cooking in three pots on the stove top.
"The first responding officer saw what she believed was meat cooking on the stove top," Prosecutors told reporters at Hengl's arraignment Wednesday.
"In addition to the parts of the victim that were cooking, her severed head was found in the freezer," they added.
Hengl was arrested as he finished a beer at a bar near the couple's home. He was subsequently charged with murder, mutilation of remains and cruelty to a dependent elderly person.
I wonder if he will go with an insanity defense. Anyway, we should all take a lesson from this. Heads can roll when you piss off a senior citizen…
Live Long and Prosper...
