    BERLIN, Germany (CNN) -- A German computer technician accused of killing,
    dismembering and eating the flesh of a man who agreed to the deal over the
    Internet has gone on trial for murder.

    Armin Meiwes, whose trial started on Wednesday, is charged with murder as no
    crime of cannibalism exists in Germany. The case is the first of its kind in
    the country.

    Dressed in a dark suit, Meiwes, from Rotenburg-an-der-fuld, in central Germany,
    appeared relaxed as he sat down next to his lawyer at the Kassel state court.

    The story was splashed all over the tabloids last year when it broke, and the
    42-year-old defendant has spoken to the press, reportedly saying "sorry."

    He is alleged to have cut off part of the victim's body before the pair ate it
    together. The defendant is then alleged to have cut up the victim, storing his
    body in a freezer and eating it over the following months.

    The defense is expected to argue that the victim, a 43-year-old computer
    technician identified only as Bernd Juergen B., from Berlin, agreed to the
    macabre event.

    Police tracked down and arrested the suspect in December last year after a
    student in Austria alerted them to an advertisement Meiwes had allegedly placed
    on the Internet seeking a man willing to be killed and eaten.


    "The German public on the one hand is repulsed, but of course, on the other is
    fascinated," said CNN's Berlin Bureau Chief Stephanie Halasz.

    The alleged crime at the 18th century manor house happened in March 2001,
    prosecutors say.

    A verdict from the court, which is scheduled to hear 38 witnesses, is expected
    in February.
