Gilberto Valle, a former city cop who is accused of plotting to kidnap, rape, kill and eat women, communicated with a butcher in India about his plans to kill and cook his wife and longtime friend, an FBI agent testified on Wednesday.

The butcher, identified as Aly Khan, allegedly offered Valle a place in Pakistan to kill his soon-to-be wife, said Agent Corey Walsh, according to the New York Post.

In Internet chats between Valle and Khan from early last year, the accused cop talked about how he could talk his wife into going on a trip to India. From there, the two men would take her to Pakistan, where they would drag her to a basement, hang her from her feet and sexually assault her before killing and cooking her.

They also talked about their plans for Valle’s college friend Andria Noble. Valle wrote that he wanted to dress her like a turkey and cook her alive.

Noble, 27, who attended the University of Maryland with Valle, testified on Monday that she never knew him to be violent.

Valle’s wife, Kathleen Mangan Valle, left her husband with their infant daughter last September when she discovered his grisly fetish.

The defense team has argued that the former officer was only fantasizing.

Valle, who also allegedly used government resources to research his victims, faces a life sentence if convicted.
