Woman ‘blended boyfriend’s body and served it to neighbours’

Moroccan national arrested for murder in UAE after police ‘find human tooth in blender’

A Moroccan woman has been arrested in the United Arab Emirates on suspicion of murdering her boyfriend, shredding his remains in a blender and serving it to unsuspecting neighbours.

The unnamed woman was taken into custody by officers in Al-Ain, where she reportedly confessed to killing her partner of seven years after he attempted to break up with her.

The alarm was first raised by the victim’s brother, who had not heard from his sibling for several months.

He visited the couple’s home, where the woman told him that she had broken up with his brother and had no idea of his whereabouts. Suspicious, he contacted police to report his brother missing, reports Abu Dhabi newspaper The National.

According to reports in Moroccan media, officers searching the house found a human tooth inside the woman’s blender, which was later matched to the missing man using DNA testing.

She initially “denied any involvement but then admitted to killing the man during a moment of ‘insanity’” after her partner told her he was leaving her in order to marry another woman, says The National.

Police have declined to release details of how they believe she carried out the killing, but she reportedly told detectives that she used a blender to mince at least part of her partner’s remains.

She then cooked the flesh and served it to Pakistani workers who lived nearby, “in a traditional rice and meat dish known as machboos”, says the Associated Press.

The woman said that she had wanted “revenge” on her boyfriend, whom she said she had been supporting financially during their relationship, said police.

The accused is expected to appear in court when the investigation is complete.
