Police in Pakistan have arrested a woman for allegedly murdering, dismembering, and then cooking the remains of her former husband on a stove to hide the crime.

Zainab Bibli, 32, and her nephew Zaheer, 22, were arrested in connection with the murder of her husband Ahmed Abbas on Tuesday in the Shah Faisal colony of Pakistan's southern city Karachi, according to the International Business Times.
Police claim they recovered the knife Bibli used to murder her husband, and a bowl of his flesh she was planning to cook. Police believe she wanted to cook her husband's body parts so she could dispose of them without arousing suspicion.
Here is a video overview of the case from CNN that describes the woman's defiant television interview in Pakistan:
Pakistani TV showed disturbing footage of dismembered body parts in a bowl ready for the stove:
Police have suggested that Bibli drugged and killed her husband after he raped her daughter from a previous marriage. Apparently, Bibli believed her now dead husband planned to have an ongoing sexual relationship with the girl.
Bibli has apparently not shied away from the crime now that she's been caught, as she told a domestic satellite channel in Pakistan named ARY News on Thursday, "I killed my husband before he dared to touch my daughter."
Other sources in Pakistan have suggested she may have killed her husband because he wanted to marry another woman.
Either way, there are no reports that the wife planned to eat the husband's body parts.
Police were called because a neighbor couldn't take the reeking stench anymore. Officials are expected to declare a host of charges within days.
