Prosecutors in the UAE have accused a Moroccan woman of killing her lover, then slaughtering and cooking his body and serving his remains to Pakistani workers in a traditional rice and meat dish known as machboos akin to Biryani.
The National newspaper in Abu Dhabi quoted prosecutors in Al-Ain emirate as saying the woman was arrested on suspicion of murdering her boyfriend after he told her of his plans to marry another woman.
The newspaper reported that the man was killed three months ago, but the crime only came to light recently after the man’s brother went looking for him and found a human tooth inside the woman’s blender.
The National said that a DNA test on the tooth confirmed that it belonged to the victim. The woman reportedly confessed to killing the man in a moment of “madness”. She also stated that a friend assisted dispose of the body and that some of the flesh was minced in the blender then cooked and to nearby workers.
The suspect said she wanted revenge on the man for dumping her after she had supported him financially for seven years. Police say the woman will face trial after a full investigation is complete.
