Death verdict for cannibal.

A career criminal convicted of killing two people and eating them last winter was sentenced to death yesterday.

Vladimir Nikolayev, 38, was sentenced in Cheboksary, 350 miles east of Moscow, by the supreme court of the Chuvash Republic.

A sister of one of his victims said she would rather Nikolayev had been jailed for life "to rot alive".

In December, a Siberian prison inmate was sentenced to death for killing and attempting to eat a cellmate. And in March, a man in St Petersburg admitted killing three drinking partners and eating their internal organs.
