ROSTOV-ON-DON, Russia -- A woman and her two teenage sons have been accused of strangling a man and eating his innards, police in southern Russia said Thursday.

The woman and her sons were arrested this week on murder charges in the Rostov region town of Krasny Sulin, about 575 miles south of Moscow, regional police spokesman Alexei Polyansky said.

Police believe they strangled a local man during an argument and ate his internal organs, he said.

Polyansky said the suspects were being questioned and would be sent to a psychiatric clinic to undergo tests. The woman is in her late 30s and her sons were born in 1986 and 1989, he said.
