Lung-Eating Murderer gets 30 Years

This is the definition of weird news. A prisoner in France who killed his cell mate and ate the victim's lung got 30 years in jail last week.

Nicolas Cocaign murdered his fellow prisoner, Thierry Baudry, back in 2007 over a dispute about washing their hands. Then Cocaign cut Baudry open and ate one of his lungs, thinking it was his heart.

From Yahoo!:

"What I did, I liked doing," said Cocaign, 37, who has a shaved head and whose face is covered in tattoos.
He will have to serve at least 20 years of his sentence.
Aware of his impulses, Cocaign had requested psychiatric help in 1998 and asked to be placed in isolation in 2006.
"It's exceptional to see a psychologically disturbed person say: I have to be treated," said defense lawyer Fabien Picchiottino, noting the "failure of the psychiatric, penitentiary and social system."

Just wow.
