cannibal gets lighter sentence because "he was hungry"

The story is so bizarre that this blog will not carry the weird(est) details.

Sergey Gavrilov, 27, has been convicted of killing his mother after an argument in which she refused to let him take her pension money to spend on alcohol. Sergey killed his mother by striking her with a brick and then spent her money on gambling and alcohol.

After spending the money, he cannibalized the frozen body of his mother over the course of a month.

Sergey was tried and convicted in a Russian court. He has been sentenced to 15 years in prison -- but his sentence was reduced somewhat because the judge noted that Sergey "was not keen to eat the meat, he just was hungry." [www_dailymail_co_uk]
