A woman in southwestern Sweden took “boning” to a new level, police contend, and may face up to two years in the slammer.
The 37-year-old woman is accused of necrophilia and was formally charged on Tuesday at the Gothenburg District Court for the crime of “violating the peace of the dead."
Police were initially notified that a gunshot had been fired from the woman’s apartment in September, which led to the alleged discovery of 100 skeleton parts in her apartment.
While searching her home, the police reportedly also found a CD titled "My Necrophilia" as well as photographs in which a woman is shown being intimate with the skeleton’s parts, including licking a skull, according to the Swedish news agency TT.
However, the woman has denied the charges, claiming she collected the bones out of historical interest, according to the AP.
"In the confidential section of the investigation we have material which indicates she used them in sexual situations," the prosecutor Kristina Ehrenborg-Staffas told the TT news agency.
“Some of the photos show a woman licking a skull," Ehrenborg-Staffas told The Local, a Swedish newspaper. “She has a lot of photos of morgues and chapels, and documents about how to have sex with recently deceased and otherwise dead people,” she told them.
According to the prosecution, the woman has also sold skulls over the internet.
Other police evidence discovered in the woman’s apartment included pictures from a morgue, discovered in a concealed compartment in the woman's home, along with body bags and a drill.
