A 21-year-old college student from Kenya accused of killing a housemate told police he ate the victims heart and part of his brain after he died.
Alexander Kinyua hid the head and hands of the dead man in his familys basement laundry room in a suburb of Baltimore,according to the sheriffs office. Kinyua,a student at Morgan State University,was charged earlier in May in another attack in which the victim was brutally beaten but survived.
Kinyua is charged with first-degree murder in the death of 37-year-old Kujoe Bonsafo Agyei-Kodie,of Ghana. Sheriffs spokeswoman Monica Worrell said the chief medical examiner had not yet officially identified the body parts,but that authorities believe they are those of Kodie,who was reported missing May 25. His cellphone and wallet were left in the home and police were initially told he had gone for a run.
