'Cannibal Cop' Pleads Not Guilty: Report

Gilberto Valle, of Forest Hills, allegedly plotted to kidnap, cook and eat women.

Gilberto Valle, the Forest Hills police officer accused of pleaded not guilty in federal court in Manhattan Monday, according to Reuters.

Valle's lawyer has tried unsuccessfully to have him released on bail twice since his arrest, according to the report. 

He was taken into custody last month, after investigators discovered hundreds of files on his computer in which he detailed methods of kidnapping, torturing and raping a hundred women. 

Investigators also discovered records of several conversations Valle had with alleged co-conspirators, including one in which he said he planned to "cook her over a low heat, [to] keep her alive as long as possible."

At the time of his arrest, Valle was not suspected of carrying out any of his plans. 

Many of Valle's potential victims had been taken from a police database, investigators said.
