NY policeman Gilberto Valle guilty of cannibal plot

A New York City police officer has been found guilty of plotting to murder his wife, and cook and eat other women.

Gilberto Valle, 28, was arrested by the FBI last year following a tip-off by his wife.

The trial heard how Valle had taken steps to carry out his plan of abducting, torturing and eating women he knew.
