(Newser) – The British “cannibal chef” who cooked and ate parts of his boyfriend after killing him was sentenced to 30 years to life in prison today, the Telegraph reports. Applause and cries of “murderer” exploded from the gallery after Anthony Morely, 36, was sentenced. The judge called it “one of the most gruesome murders” he had seen. “You have plumbed depths rarely encountered in our court,” he told Morely.
