A FORMER model convicted of killing her husband and then eating parts of his body in 1991 is scheduled to appear before a California appeal board next week to seek an early release.
 
Omaima Nelson was sentenced to between 27 years and life for murdering her 56-year-old husband William Nelson over the Thanksgiving weekend in 1991, then dismembering and cooking parts of his body in their Costa Mesa, California, apartment, the Daily Pilot said.
 
Senior Deputy District Attorney Randy Pawloski, who prosecuted the case, said Nelson - a former Egyptian model who immigrated to the US in 1986 - cooked her husband's head on the stove, skinned his torso and fried his hands in oil. At one point during the investigation, the then 27-year-old Nelson admitted dipping her cooked husband's body into barbecue sauce and tasting it.
 
Pawloski told the Pilot he opposed Nelson's early release.
 
"This is probably one of the most egregious mutilations we've ever had," he said. "It is one of the most gruesome and notorious crimes ever committed in Orange County."
 
Nelson's parole hearing is scheduled for Wednesday at Chowchilla State Prison in Central California, where she is incarcerated, the Pilot reported.
