A young man has gone on trial in Spain for allegedly killing his mother and eating her remains.
Alberto Sánchez Gómez was arrested in 2019 after police went to the home of his 66-year-old mother.
Body parts were found scattered around the apartment – some kept in plastic containers.
The defendant, who was 26 at the time, reportedly confessed to strangling his mother and said he had sometimes eaten the body parts and sometimes given them to the dog.
He is also reported to have been suffering from a personality disorder as well as a drug habit prior to his arrest.
The 26 year old was prior known to police because of violence against his mother, María Soledad Gómez, and that he had breached a restraining order at the time of his arrest.
