OCEANSIDE, Calif. — A southern California man whose wife's flesh was found cooking in pots on the stove at their home in Oceanside has pleaded not guilty to murder and other charges, authorities said.

Oceanside police said they arrested Frederick Hengl, 68, last Friday after they were called to investigate a foul smell coming from the home he shared with his wife, Anna Faris, 73, a few blocks from Oceanside pier.

Investigating officers found parts of Faris' body cooking in three pots on the stove top, according to Deputy District Attorney Katherine Flaherty.

“The first responding officer saw what she believed was meat cooking on the stove top,” Flaherty told reporters at Hengl's arraignment.

“In addition to the parts of the victim that were cooking, her severed head was found in the freezer,” she added.
