A German electrician castrated men and mutilated their genitals in a series of ghoulish surgeries on his kitchen table that authorities say led to one man’s death.
The 66-year-old is facing a murder rap, but denied he was responsible for the man who died several days after his operation.
The others, he said, requested the procedures after he told them he was a trained professional, dba reported.
The accused, whose name wasn’t released, operated on eight men between July 2018 and March 2020 at his home in Markt Schwaben.
He told the court he castrated or partially amputated their genitals, according to the Associated Press.
The body of the man who died was found by police weeks after the operation in a box, the AP said.
The trial began on Thursday in Munich, reports said.
