NY police officer says not guilty of plan to cook, eat women
NEW YORK (REUTERS) - A New York City police officer pleaded not guilty on Monday to conspiring to kidnap, torture, cook and eat women.
Gilberto Valle, 28, of Forest Hills, Queens, was charged and arrested in October with conspiring to cross state lines to kidnap the women and with illegally accessing a federal database.
Prosecutors said some of the women were acquaintances of Valle but it was not clear if he knew or had met all of them.
Valle, who an official said had no prior criminal record, was not charged with carrying out any of his suspected plans.
