A new series of emails shows “cannibal cop” Gilberto Valle shared personal information with two co-conspirators about different women he knew in a plot to kill and eat them, including two friends from college.

On the second day of his trial, prosecutors displayed emails and instant messages that had detailed descriptions of what Valle wanted to do with these women, including a friend he’s known since 2002 when they attended the University of Maryland together, The Daily News reported.

The college friend, Kimberly Sauer, 29, testified on Tuesday. She said she considered Valle a friend and had no idea of his gruesome plans for her.

Valle exchanged emails with a co-conspirator known as “Moody Blues” about how he wanted to kill her and devour her.

“I’ll be eying her from head to toe and licking my lips, longing for the day I cram a chloroform-soaked rag in her face,” he wrote in an email some time before he had plans to meet Sauer for lunch, according to The Daily News.

Valle also targeted another college friend, Andria Noble, as well as his own wife Kathleen Mangan Valle and an 18-year-old college student named Kristen Ponticelli, who says she never met Valle.

Defense lawyer Julia Gatto said Valle never shared the last names of the women, indicating that his plans were part of a fantasy and not actual plans he was planning to carry out.
