(Newser) – A British chef is on trial for killing, cooking and eating part of a man after having sex with him, the Independent reports. The one-time winner of the Mr. Gay UK contest stabbed the man to death, cut flesh from his thigh, seasoned and cooked it, and tried to eat part of it, according to police.

The 36-year-old chef then went to a nearby restaurant wearing a only a dressing gown and told managers there: "I've killed someone, call the police." Investigators found pieces of cooked human flesh in his kitchen. The man, who prosecutors say had a previous relationship with the victim and is troubled by his sexuality, now denies the murder.
