Teenage would-be cannibal ordered into psychiatric care

Cottbus, Germany  - A would-be teenage cannibal was ordered into closed psychiatric care in Germany Tuesday after he tried to sink his teeth into a nurse's neck and eat part of her.

The defendant told psychologists he had an urge to eat beautiful women.

A court in Cottbus, where he was on trial for attempted murder and assault for the June 2007 attack in a Berlin therapy centre, ruled Tuesday that he was insane.

The court was told that in another incident, in August 2007, the defendant, 19, tried to stab a male educationist to death with a nail file.(dpa)
