      Tennessee man murdered woman and ate part of her body

      MANCHESTER, Tenn. -- New details are emerging about a gruesome murder in Coffee County.

      Lisa Marie Hyder was a 36 year old mother of six children. She lived near Chattanooga, and tonight her ex-husband says she met her suspected killer, Scott Hale, at a liquor store on the day she was murdered.

      Scott Hale remains behind bars, and friends say his satanism may have played a role in the alleged murder. Court documents allege he cut off the head, hands and feet of Lisa Marie Hyder, and then ate part of her body. Lisa's ex-husband Charles Hyder lives in Dunlap, Tennessee.

      On Monday investigators told him she was dead. "When he told me what happened, oh my God, I collapsed. I just couldn't believe it," says Charles Hyder. Charles says his ex-wife called him Friday afternoon, shortly before she met Scott Hale at a liquor store. Hyder believes Hale offered to drive Lisa home, but instead took her to his house.
