A Swedish woman has been accused of keeping more than 100 parts from human skeletons in her apartment in order to have sex with them.
The 37-year-old’s haul is reported to include a backbone, six skulls and a raft of other small parts, according to Swedish news agency TT.

Prosecutors allege that the woman used the bones for sexual gratification. She was charged with “violating the peace of the dead" after police found incriminating photographs of her kissing and licking the remains. Officers also found a video in the women’s flat, entitled 'My Necrophilia'. According to AFP, a body bag, a drill and a photograph from a mortuary were also found.
The skeleton parts were discovered after police were called to the woman's flat in September after a gunshot was allegedly fired from the dwelling.
The woman denied the charges when appearing before Gothenburg District Court on Wednesday, claiming she kept the skeleton parts out of historical curiosity. If she is found guilty, she could serve up to two years in prison.
According to local newspaper the Goeteborgsposten, the accused has posted incriminating messages on Internet forums in the past. She is reported to have written: "My morals set my limits and I'm prepared to take the punishment if something should happen.
"It's worth it. I want my man like he is, whether he is dead or alive. He allows me to find sexual happiness on the side."
