Accused "cannibal cop" Gilberto Valle.

After a week of gruesome testimony and eerie evidence, the jury in the trial of “cannibal cop” Gilberto Valle will soon begin its deliberations, according to reports.

The six-year NYPD veteran who is accused of planning to kidnap, kill and eat 100 women decided not to take the stand during his trial, which began February 25.

Valle’s estranged wife broke down during her testimony while describing her husband’s “deranged” plot to include her in his meal plan, according to reports. Other possible “targets” also described their interaction with the cop.

FBI agents also took the stand, since Valle is also charged with improperly using a federal law enforcement database to look up information on his possible targets. They said Valle’s Internet searches included “recipes for human flesh” and “how to chloroform a girl,” reports said.

Defense attorney Robert Baum told reporters the evidence shows “all fantasy role play.”

The jury was set to return Thursday, March 7, to hear closing arguments before beginning deliberations.
