BOSTON—A 79-year-old man accused of killing his wife and eating some of her flesh before he was found sitting in a rocking chair in their Shrewsbury apartment has died.

Prosecutors said Saturday that Jieming Liu died at Lemuel Shattuck Hospital in Boston's Jamaica Plain neighborhood.

Tim Connolly, spokesman for Worcester District Attorney Joseph Early, said he did not have information on when Liu died, the cause of death and circumstances surrounding the passing.

Liu appeared disoriented and was wearing a white jumpsuit with no shoes when he was arraigned on April 16. He was sent to Bridgewater State Hospital for mental evaluation, but was later transferred to Shattuck for treatment.

The couple arrived from China in November. His son said he thought his father may have Alzheimer's disease.
