Before his Texas murder trial, Andre Thomas, pulled out his right eye, claiming to be mentally ill.
The judge said he was competent. He was convicted in the stabbing deaths of his estranged wife and two young kids - he had ripped out their hearts.
Last month, he plucked out his left eye. (The picture at left appears to be before the latest incident.)
He told officers - who found him in his cell with blood on his face - that he ate it.
"Thomas said he pulled out his eye and subsequently ingested it," Jason Clark, a spokesman with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice told the Associated Press. He has been taken to a prison psychiatric unit.
Said his trial attorney, Bobbie Peterson-Cate: "He is insane and mentally ill. It is exactly the same reason he pulled out the last one."
Thomas is on death row for the grisly murders of his estranged wife, 4-year-old son and 13-month old daughter.
Thomas stabbed them to death and ripped out their hearts. He then took the hearts with him and put them in a bag before throwing them in the trash.
Then we went to a police station and tried to stab himself.
