TYLER, Texas (AP) -- Authorities say a man jailed in Texas in the death of his girlfriend cooked parts of her body and may have been planning to eat them. Christopher McCuin faces a capital murder charge and will appear in court Monday. Authorities believe Jana Shearer was abducted from her home Friday night and killed. They say that was apparently the beginning of a crime spree that also included McCuin stabbing his estranged wife's boyfriend and breaking into a business. The Smith County sheriff says the 25-year-old man called 911 Saturday and told an emergency dispatcher he had killed Shearer and was boiling her body parts at his mother's home. When authorities arrived at the home, they found the mutilated remains of the 21-year-old woman. They say one ear was boiling in a pot of water on the stove and human flesh was found on the kitchen table.
