In another bizarre and shocking incident of human flesh-eating, a 21-year-old student in Maryland allegedly confessed to murdering and eating his roommate's brain and heart.

Alexander Kinyua, an electrical student at Morgan State University, was charged with first-degree murder after severed head and hands of a housemate were found in his Harford County home.

Kinyua admitted of murdering his housemate Kujoe Bonsafo Agyei-Kodie by cutting him with a knife and then eating his heart and portions of his brain, cops told the Baltimore Sun.

This is the second horrifying incident of human flesh-eating that has shocked the whole world.

Last week, on May 26 Ronald Poppo became the unfortunate victim and lost most of his face in a horrible cannibal attack in Miami.

The Hartford County Sheriff's office said that while searching the town home on Terrapin Terrace in Joppa, Maryland, they discovered the body parts.

Sheriff's office searched the house after receiving a tip from Kinyua's father, Antony Kinyua, who reported that Agyei-Kodie went missing last Friday after going for a jog.

On Tuesday night, Antony called police when Kinyua's brother, Jarrod Kinyua, reportedly found the dismembered body of Agyei-Kodie in a metal tin in the basement.

Both Anthony and Jarrod left the room for a short time, but when they came back they discovered that the remains had been moved and Kinyua was washing out the tin, the Baltimore Sun reported.

But police were able to locate the head and hands of Agyei-Kodie on the main floor of the house. When police inquired Kinyua, he allegedly admitted the shocking revelation. He also directed the police to Towne Baptist Church where the rest of the body parts were found in a trash container.   

Sheriff Jesse Bane told the Sun that "the body parts were being sent for further analysis to assure investigators that we're dealing with one victim."

On Wednesday, Kinyua was charged with first-degree murder, but the motive behind the killing is not yet clear.

In another incident on May 19, Kinyua allegedly beat a man with a baseball bat on Morgan's campus and then fled into the woods, Baltimore police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told the Associated Press.

Later Kinyua was arrested with first-degree assault and was released on $220,000 bail. The University officials have also said that the school was in the process of expelling him.

Kinyua's Facebook page suggests that he had been increasingly troubled during his third year at school, the Sun reported. 

As for the victim, the 37-year-old Kodie is a native of Ghana. According to police records, in November 2008 Koide was convicted of sex offense in Baltimore County and in September 2007, he was convicted of sexual harassment, stalking and misusing phone for making repeated calls to a woman.
