Slaying Tied to Cannibalism Plot, Police Say

April 18, 2006|From the Associated Press

PURCELL, Okla. — A grocery store stocker was arraigned Monday on first-degree murder charges in the killing of a 10-year-old girl in what authorities said was an elaborate plan to eat human flesh.

Kevin Ray Underwood, 26, was led into court with his hands and feet shackled and told the judge he needed a public defender. McClain County Judge Gary D. Barger entered a not guilty plea for him.

Police Chief David Tompkins said investigators believe Underwood sexually assaulted the girl after he killed her and planned to eat the corpse.
