The prosecution in the case of convicted German cannibal Armin Meiwes is appealing the verdict. Last Friday, Armin Meiwes was sentenced to eight years and six months in prison by a court in Kassel for manslaughter. On Monday, state prosecutors appealed for the verdict to be revised, pushing for life sentence for Meiwes on charges on murder. Meiwes was convicted of killing a 43-year-old computer specialist from Berlin, who had agreed to be slaughtered and eaten. The defense lawyer Harald Ermel said his client has not yet decided on filing a appeal for a shorter sentence.
