Jury taking the weekend to decide fate of “cannibal cop”

A verdict has been reached in the Cannibal Cop case. The jury has been deliberating since Friday in the case of Gilberto Valle, the NYPD officer charged with plotting to kidnap, torture and eat women.

The defense has argued that his plans were pure fantasy, but prosecutors insist his plans were aborted before something horrible could happen.

The verdict will be read soon.
