The audio recording of Lomita chef David Viens confessing to killing his wife and then cooking her remains has been released.
In the clip, Viens details the night he killed his wife Dawn back in 2009.
He speaks calmly as he recalls the grisly details. Occasionally he winces in pain, and at one point in the recording, a nurse is heard entering the room to administer Vicodin.
The interview was conducted on March 15, 2011, nearly three weeks after the suspect jumped off a cliff in Rancho Palos Verdes.
In the recording, released by the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office, Viens tells detectives that after arguing with his wife, he tied her up and placed duct tape over her mouth.
When he awoke four hours later, she was dead, and that's when he concocted the plan to cook her remains.
"…I just slowly cooked it and I ended up cooking her for four days," he told police.
The 49-year-old was found guilty of second-degree murder and is currently awaiting sentencing. He faces 15 years to life in prison.
