Rape added to murder and cannibalism charges against Indiana man

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 05/06/2015 - 06:33
A southern Indiana man who is facing a possible death penalty on charges that he killed his ex-girlfriend and ate part of her body has now been charged with raping her, an attorney representing the defendant said on Tuesday. The added charge against Joseph Oberhansley is intended to bolster the prosecution's case for the death penalty, attorney Mike McDaniel said. Oberhansley, 34, was charged last September in Clark County, Indiana, with breaking into the Jeffersonville home of his ex-girlfriend, Tammy Jo Blanton, murdering her and abusing her corpse by eating parts of it. It was added, McDaniel said, because the other charges were not strong enough to warrant the death penalty.
