A Tennessee man who told police he ate part of his victim's body has been sentenced to life in prison without parole after pleading guilty in the woman's death.

Coffee Circuit Judge Craig Johnson sentenced 37-year-old Gregory Scott Hale of Summitville on Thursday.

The Tullahoma News said Hale pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in the June 8 death of 36-year-old Lisa Marie Hyder.

Prosecutors say Hale picked Hyder up at a liquor store and took her to his residence, killing her after sex.

They say he told investigators that he was fulfilling an obsession. He also admitted to eating a part of the victim.

'He told investigators that he fulfilled an obsession in wanting to kill a person and dismembering them,' Coffee County District Attorney Craig Northcott told Circuit Court Judge Craig Johnson Thursday.

Coffee County District Attorney Craig Northcott said officers discovered a burned torso with hands, feet and head cut off and found in buckets.
Hale's attorney, Kevin Askren, didn't immediately return a call.

Hyder’s former husband Charles Hyder said he and his children 'forgave Hale' for killing her then dismembering her.

Hyder told The Tullahoma News that he was happy with the plea agreement.
'Lisa and I were married for six years and had two children, a 4-year old and a 6-year old,' Hyder said.

'The children are too young to understand what has happened so I just told them that mama got sick and she has gone to live with God.'

Hyder's father Billy Poore told the court that he could not forgive hale 'at this time.'
'I will never have her back,' Poore said.
'May God have mercy on him.'
