After four days of deliberations, the jury has finally reached a verdict in the trial of “cannibal cop” Gilberto Valle.
Valle has reportedly been convicted on both counts of conspiracy to commit kidnapping and for accessing a federal government computer database without authorization.
The six-year NYPD veteran who planned to kidnap, kill and eat 100 women, made the decision to not take the stand during his trial and reportedly only spoke to the judge the last day of the trail to discuss his decision “not to testify.”
The trial began February 25 and closing arguments were given on Tuesday, March 5. During the trial testimonies were given by possible “targets” in Valle’s “deranged” plot, which included his estranged wife who broke down as she took the stand to describe the details in her husband’s plan.
FBI agents also provided evidence of Valle’s “sick web chats with fellow fetishists” and Internet searches, including “recipes for human flesh” and “how to chloroform a girl.”
Valle could face life in prison.
