DETROIT — If you've ever seen the end of the movie "Fried Green Tomatoes," then you have an idea of what may have happened to a Michigan man in 2014.
In a new television documentary, authorities allege that a serial killer and her husband chopped up and killed her former lover and then served his remains at a neighborhood barbecue in 2014, WJBK-TV, in Detroit, reported this week. Kelly Cochran later injected her husband with a lethal dose of heroin in February 2016 in Indiana.
The docuseries on the Investigation Discovery channel called "Dead North" takes the viewer on a journey that might just leave a bad taste in their mouth.
Cochran, 36, admitted in court that she and her husband lured her lover, Chris Regan, inside their home, shot and dismembered him in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Cochran said she and her husband made a pact that they would get rid of anyone "involved in their extramarital affairs."
Investigation Discovery said in a statement that neighbors said they believed they were served human remains, possibly Regan's, at a barbecue, according to WJBK-TV. One friend who was interviewed in the documentary also described eating a strange-tasting burger without realizing at the time it could have been human.

Cochran's family told investigators she may have killed as many as nine people and buried their bodies in various spots across the Midwest, WJBK-TV reported. Cochran has said that she has other "friends" buried in Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota and Tennessee. The identities and locations of these bodies remain a mystery.
Cochran was sentenced to life in prison without parole in May 2017 for Regan's murder. She was then convicted of murdering her husband in May 2018. She was sentenced to an additional 65 years in jail for killing her husband.
