NEW YORK (AP) - The estranged wife of a police officer accused of plotting to kidnap, kill and eat women has told a New York City jury that she went to the FBI after finding disturbing material on his computer.

Kathleen Mangan-Valle wept while on the stand Monday. She is the first government witness at the federal kidnapping conspiracy trial of Officer Gilberto Valle.

Prosecutors have accused the 28-year-old Valle of plotting to abduct, torture and eat dozens of women, including his wife. He claims he was only indulging in a fantasy shared online by thousands of others visitors to Internet fetish sites.

Valle wiped his brow and put his head in his hands as he listened to his wife' testimony.
