Man, wife and mistress convicted of cannibalism; sold pies made with bodies to neighbors

Brazilian cannibals
Members of a cannibalistic love triangle in Brazil have been convicted of murdering two women and making stuffed pastries with their flesh.

After eating some stuffed bread pastries, Jorge Beltrao Negromonte da Silveira, his wife, Isabel Cristina Pires, and his mistress, Bruna Cristina Oliveira da Silva, fed some to a child and sold other pastries to neighbors.

The three were arrested in April 2012. On Friday, a seven-person jury sentenced Silveira to 23 years in prison. Pires and Silva will each serve 20 years, a weekend duty officer at the court in Olinda, Brazil, told the Telegraph.

The two victims were lured to the gang’s home with promises of employment as a nanny, then murdered and eaten as part of what police told the Telegraph was a cultic ritual aimed at “the purification of the world and the reduction of its population.”

Their remains were found in the home’s backyard.

All three defendants confessed to the crimes, the Telegraph reported. Their attorneys plan to appeal the sentences.

“I committed a horrible, monstrous mistake,” Silveira said when the trial opened, according to the Telegraph. “It was a moment of extreme weakness and brutality that I regret.”

“Mistake” may be putting it mildly.
