A 23-year-old woman was today found guilty of murdering a man who she and her boyfriend chopped up and fed through a domestic mincer before dumping his remains in a skip.
Karen Morris, of Kitchener Road, Selly Park, Birmingham, was convicted at the city's Crown Court after a jury rejected her claim of manslaughter due to diminished responsibility.

Morris' partner, former male stripper Steven Parton, of College Road, Perry Barr, also Birmingham, had admitted murder at a previous hearing.
The pair are due to be sentenced later today for murdering Nelvaughn Brade.
Mr Brade was lodging with Parton when he was shot at with a crossbow as he took a shower in the early hours of November 5 last year.
The bolt missed his neck and the 22-year-old tried to escape but he was eventually floored as his housemate rained blows on his head with an axe.
But Morris is thought to have dealt the fatal blow, stabbing Mr Brade in the neck.
Over the next few days, the couple dismembered Mr Brade's body and put his flesh put through a mincer.
His remains were packed into two oil drums which the couple drove more than 100 miles to throw on a skip, which was later dumped on a landfill site near King's Lynn in Norfolk.
