Plea Postponed For MD Man Accused Of Cannibalism

Posted: Updated:

BEL AIR, Md. (AP) - A plea hearing is postponed for a college student who told authorities he killed a man and ate his heart and parts of his brain.
    
Alexander Kinyua was scheduled to appear Monday in Harford County Circuit Court, but judge Stephen Waldron says the hearing was canceled because Kinyua wasn't transported to the courthouse. Waldron says it might be rescheduled for August, but no date was set.
    
No other details about why Kinyua wasn't transported from the psychiatric hospital where he's committed indefinitely were available.
    
He is charged with killing a 37-year-old man from Ghana who was staying with Kinyua's family outside Baltimore in 2012.
    
Authorities say Kinyua ranted about "mass human sacrifices" on Facebook before the slaying.
    
Kinyua pleaded guilty but not criminally responsible to attacking a man in a separate case.
