Chef Found Guilty of Killing Wife, Cooking Body for Four Days

Today, a Los Angeles jury found chef David Viens guilty of murdering his wife after he admitted to authorities he cooked her body for four days in an attempt to hide the murder.

The 49-year-old chef murdered his wife in 2009 after an argument about money. Viens then tied his wife up and put duct tape over her mouth before going to bed. When he woke, he found her dead and said he panicked. That’s when he stuffed his wife’s 105-pound body in a 55-galon drum and boiled her, according to police records.

During the trial, recorded audio was played for the jury. Viens was recorded admitting, “I just slowly cooked it and I ended up cooking her for four days.”

Viens is scheduled to be sentenced November 27. He faces 15 years to life in prison.
