    An NYPD officer charged with plotting to kidnap, torture, cook and eat at least 100 women had discussed having "girl meat" for Thanksgiving.

    Prosecutors say Gilberto Valle made the remark in an online chat in February with an unidentified man. They read the transcript during Valle's bail hearing Tuesday in Manhattan federal court.

    [NY] NYPD Officer Threatened to Cook, Eat Women: Police
    An NYPD officer is accused of threatening to kidnap, cook and eat women in a bizarre plot where he fantasized about how "tasty" one victim looked and said it would be easy to roast a person in his oven, officials said Thursday. News 4's Jonathan Dienst reports. (Published Friday, Oct. 26, 2012)

    Valle was quoted 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.

    The judge on Tuesday denied bail, calling Valle's behavior "depraved, bizarre, aberrational." He set the trial for Jan. 22.

    Valle has pleaded not guilty.

    No women were actually harmed.
