Defense poised to open in NY 'cannibal cop' kidnap conspiracy trial

By Chris Francescani NEW YORK, March 5 (Reuters) - For more than a week, jurors in the federal kidnapping conspiracy trial of so-called New York "cannibal cop" Gilberto Valle have been exposed to talk, imagery and video detailing extraordinary brutality against women. On Tuesday, defense attorneys are set to begin presenting their case but jurors will not get a chance to hear from Valle himself, according to Stephanie Cirkovich, spokeswoman for the U.S. District Court in Manhattan.
