Swedish woman cuffed for sex with skeleton SHOCKER

A 37-year-old Swedish woman has been charged with "violating the peace of the dead" after allegedly using human skeletal remains for "sexual gratification".

The unnamed boner-lover was cuffed back in September by cops investigating a report of a gunshot at her Gothenburg apartment. Shaken officers "immediately called for back-up after finding skeleton parts and knives in the woman’s living room", although initial suspicions of murderous foul play later gave way to the realisation of something rather more macabre.

Prosecutors say the woman had somehow acquired pretty well a whole human skeleton, bits of which she used as sex toys in an "unethical" manner. They point to a seized CD labelled "My necrophilia" and "My first experience", and alleged online sales of skulls by the accused to fellow collectors as further evidence of her dark doings.

However, when hauled before Gothenburg District Court, the defendant pleaded not guilty to the brott mot griftesfriden rap, as violating the peace of the dead is known locally.

She claimed she'd "not done anything illegal", and was simply "motivated by an interest in history and collected the remains like other people might collect stamps".

A psychological evaluation has ruled the woman not mentally ill "in any juridical sense of the term", so if she's found guilty of violating the peace, she won't dodge a penalty ranging from a fine to two years' hard time. ®
