LONDON (AFP) - A convicted killer with serious psychiatric problems and a confessed penchant for cannibalism has been given two life sentences for killing two people, including an old friend whose brain he cooked up in a frying pan and ate.

The judge sentencing Peter Bryan at London's Old Bailey court on Tuesday said his conviction would leave no possibility of early release.

The 35-year-old, characterized by expert witnesses as a paranoid schizophrenic, has already served seven years in a high-security psychiatric hospital for beating to death a 20-year-old store assistant with a hammer in 1993. He was released in 2001.

In February 2004, while living in a community mental health facility in east London, Bryan went to visit a friend, Brian Cherry, 43, at home in nearby Walthamstow.

Neighbors heard screams from the home and alerted police, who discovered Bryan had killed his friend and was cooking the dismembered body and brains in a frying pan.

Prosecutor Aftab Jafferjee said Bryan had inflicted more than 24 blows to Cherry's head, chopped him up with the aid of kitchen knives and had already eaten some of the man's brain cooked in butter by the time police arrived. "
