LOS ANGELES - A US chef was convicted of second degree murder Thursday after he admitted to slow-cooking his wife's body for four days to get rid of the evidence, while claiming she had died accidentally.
David Viens, 49, told police he had bound his 39-year-old wife Dawn with duct tape to stop her from escaping, and then went to sleep. He awoke four hours later to find her dead, and panicked.
"I cooked her four days. I let her cool, I strained it out" and then threw the remains in the trash, he told detectives in evidence revealed during the trial. Her body was never found after she disappeared in October 2009.
