A man who died after being tasered by police was allegedly found eating a woman’s eyeball and face in a hotel room.
Security staff at The Sirhowy Arms Hotel in Argoed, South Wales, burst into the room after murder suspect Matthew Williams, 34, refused to let them in.
Horrified staff called police who hit Williams with the high voltage taser knocking him to the floor.
Williams, who was released from prison just two weeks ago, was formally arrested but died moments later.
The 22-year-old woman, who he had just met, was also confirmed dead from her injuries.
The horrific attack on the young woman was met with revulsion in the former mining village.
Jill Edwards, who lives near the hotel, said: ‘This animal was eating this girl to death. He murdered her so police stopped him – good on them.
‘Security said they told him no girls in his room and he didn’t answer, when they opened his door he was eating her face.’
Williams – known by his nickname Fifi – had just served half a five-year prison sentence for a violent attack on his partner who lives nearby.
A Gwent Police spokeswoman said: ‘We were called at 1.23am after a reported that a man was attacking a woman in the Sirhowy Arms Hotel.
‘On arrival both the male and female were still at the location. A taser was discharged and a man was arrested.
‘The woman was located with injuries and has since been pronounced deceased. While under arrest, the man became unresponsive. Officers and paramedics administered first aid but he has since been pronounced deceased.
‘A murder investigation is underway into the death of the woman.’
