Man chokes to death after eating wife’s face in South Africa

`A South African man choked to death minutes after killing his wife and eating part of her face following a domestic argument, police has said today.

Police stormed into a house in rural KwaZulu-Natal near the border with Mozambique early on Friday after neighbours reported a disturbance, Captain Tienkie van Vuuren has told Reuters. They found a 30-year-old woman who had been stabbed to death. [..]

After a struggle, officers handcuffed the man — who was aged around 33 and had no history of mental illness — but soon afterwards he choked, collapsed and died, she said.’
