(CBS/AP) NEW YORK - Gilberto Valle, the alleged NYC "cannibal cop" charged with plotting to kidnap, torture, cook and eat at least 100 women, had discussed having "girl meat" for Thanksgiving.
Prosecutors read a transcript of an online chat between Valle and an unidentified male in February in which he made the remark. They read the transcript during Valle's bail hearing Tuesday in Manhattan federal court.
Valle was reported as saying that while Thanksgiving was still a long way off, he was getting a plan in motion to abduct a woman for the meal.
His lawyer has said the alleged plot was pure fantasy. No women were actually harmed.
The judge denied bail on Tuesday, calling Valle's behavior "depraved, bizarre, aberrational." He set the trial for Jan. 22.
Valle has pleaded not guilty.
