KARANGANYAR, Indonesia, Aug. 12 (UPI) -- A former cannibal in Indonesia who is currently living at a mental institution said he is on the lookout for potential wives.

Sumanto, who was sentenced to five years in prison in 2003 after stealing a woman's corpse and eating it in a bid to obtain supernatural powers, told Tempointeraktif.com this week he has been "yearning for a wife," the Jakarta Globe reported Friday.

Sumanto, who was freed from prison in 2006 and is currently living at Haji Mustajab Mental Institution in Karanganyar, said he is looking for a woman who shares his Muslim faith.

"The important thing is, my wife has to be a woman and she has to be religious," Sumanto said.

"She doesn't have to be beautiful but if she looks like (actress and singer) Dewi Perssik, it couldn't hurt either," he said.
