A man is facing possible prison time after allegedly killing his lover with a cucumber dildo in 2014, German news site Mannheim24 reported. 

The unidentified married 46-year-old and his lover reportedly had been having an affair for five years when the incident occurred.

The Local, an English German news site reported that the man confessed the pair would use all sorts of conveniently shaped vegetables in their sex play. They never expected things to go wrong — until they did. 

The man claims that because his lover didn't bring any toys with her, he used a cucumber from the kitchen instead. First he used it as a dildo and then stuck it in her mouth.

This is when things get weird. The man explained that he saw smoke come from the kitchen after he had a left a piece of meat cooking, so he went to solve that issue.

“I’d forgotten that I’d put a piece of meat on the stove for my dog. It was burning. I ran into the kitchen, fed the dog and then smoked a cigarette on the balcony,” he reportedly told the court.

When he returned he found his lover had been suffocated by the cucumber.

“I tried to pull the pieces of cucumber out of her throat,” he explained. “But they were so mushy I couldn’t get them all.”

The man now faces a ruling this Friday and if found guilty could spend five years in prison.
