PURCELL, Okla. (AP) -- New court documents filed by prosecutors allege that a former grocery store stocker charged with first-degree murder discussed cannibalism and cooking organs and told one former co-worker: "I'm gonna snap and kill someone."

The claims about Kevin Ray Underwood's behavior are contained in a witness summary report filed by prosecutors prior to a hearing Tuesday in McClain County District Court.

According to the report, Underwood talked to a childhood friend about cannibalism and also talked to a worker at an Oklahoma City haircut shop about cooking organs.

Underwood faces a first-degree murder charge in the April 2006 death of Jamie Rose Bolin, who lived upstairs from Underwood at a Purcell apartment complex. Bolin was found dead inside a storage tub in Underwood's closet.

His trial is scheduled to begin August 13th.
