Unsettling photos have emerged of a Swedish woman licking and cosying up to a number of skulls that she kept along with other human bones that prosecutors allege she used for sexual purposes.
The images obtained from Swedish police by The Sun show the 37-year-old licking the cranium of the yellowing skull and in another photo her tongue touches the skeleton's teeth.
The Gothenburg woman who has not been named kept at least six skulls, one spine and "a large number of other bones" in her apartment, according to the prosecution's charge sheet.
She was arrested in September and charged with "violating the peace of the dead" on Tuesday after police uncovered the cache of skeletal remains.
It said she had used the human body parts "for various sexual activities".
The evidence included two CDs entitled "My necrophilia" and "My first experience".
Pictures from a morgue, also included in the evidence, were found in a secret compartment in the woman's home, along with a drill and body bags.
However, the police had found no proof that she had been involved in digging up graves, news agency TT reports.
The woman has admitted to keeping the items in her apartment but has denied any wrongdoing, a spokeswoman for the prosecution said.
"During the summer of 2012 (she) sold three skulls and a spine... to a person in Uppsala," the prosecutor said in the indictment.
"My morals set my limits and I'm prepared to take the punishment if something should happen. It's worth it," the woman wrote in a post on an internet forum a few years ago, according to daily newspaper Goeteborgsposten.
"I want my man like he is, whether he is dead or alive. He allows me to find sexual happiness on the side," added the woman, who has said she is in a relationship.
The access code to a morgue was also found in the apartment, the paper said, citing a press conference held by the prosecutor on Tuesday.
A preliminary court-ordered psychiatric evaluation found the woman to be legally sane.
If convicted the woman faces up to two years jail.
Her trial begins next week.
