Accused killer and cannibal pleads guilty in Maryland

BEL AIR, Md., Aug. 19 (UPI) -- Alexander Kinyua pleaded guilty Monday in Harford County, Md., court to charges he killed a family friend and ate his heart and part of his brain.

Kinyua, 22, faced first-degree murder and weapons charges in the 2012 death of Kujoe Bonsafo Agyei-Kodie. After the guilty plea Circuit Judge Stephen M. Waldron agreed the defendant was not criminally responsible for the act due to mental illness, and committed Kinyua to the state Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.

In December Kinyua pleaded guilty but not criminally responsible to beating fellow Morgan State University student Joshua Caesar.

Caesar is suing the school, claiming officials failed to protect him and ignored warning signs of Kinyua's mental instability. Agyei-Kodie's death occurred several days after Kinyua was released on bail in Caesar's beating, The Baltimore Sun said Monday.
