A judge has ruled that some gruesome photographs of tortured, dead and dismembered women cannot be shown at the trial of a New York police officer accused of a cannibalism plot.

The judge ruled Monday at the start of the second week of trial for Officer Gilberto Valle. He is accused of conspiring with others to kill and eat women that he knew, including his wife.

The 28-year-old officer has insisted it was all fantasy play on the Internet. But prosecutors last week at the Manhattan trial unveiled a slew of Internet communications in which Valle spoke of how he would kidnap, kill and eat various women he knew.

The prosecution is expected to complete its case Monday.
