The chef who told police that he had cooked his wife for four days was convicted yesterday of murder
. David Viens wife disappeared three years ago. No one is really sure what happened to the body of his wife because it was never found. Police used a trick to get Viens to confess. They planted a story in the newspaper saying they had found his wife's blood in their home. He then told his girlfriend he had killed his wife and then ran out the door and tried to kill himself by jumping off an 80 foot cliff. Didn't work, although he does have a bunch of injuries. At one point he told the police he slow cooked his dead wife in a barrel in his restaurant for four days.
