NEW YORK (AP) — A judge has ruled that some gruesome photographs of tortured, dead and dismembered women cannot be shown at the trial of a New York police officer accused of a cannibalism plot.

The judge ruled Monday at the start of the second week of trial for Officer Gilberto Valle (VAL’-ee.) He is accused of conspiring with others to kill and eat women that he knew, including his wife.

The 28-year-old officer has insisted it was all fantasy play on the Internet. But prosecutors last week at the Manhattan trial unveiled a slew of Internet communications in which Valle spoke of how he would kidnap, kill and eat various women he knew.

The prosecution is expected to complete its case Monday.
