No, I'm not making that up. The Local reports:
After meeting at a high security ward and chatting on the internet, “the Skara Cannibal” and the “Vampire Woman”, two infamous Swedish murderers, have found love and are hoping to get married.
”We got together on November 13th. 'Do you want to be my girlfriend?' he asked on MSN. Then we decided to get engaged, which we did on December 9th,” the “Vampire Woman” Michelle Gustafsson told Expressen.
The couple are fellow inmates at the Karsuddens psychiatric facility near Katrineholm in eastern Sweden. They are both being treated for highly unusual crimes, making huge headlines in Sweden.
Gustafsson is convicted of the murder of a father of four in Stockholm in 2010. She stabbed him to death with a knife, but claims she does not remember the incident at all.
On her personal blog she had been writing about killing people on the Stockholm underground and published pictures of herself as a vampire with a bloodied mouth, brandishing a knife and a power saw, according to the paper.
Isakin Jonsson, or ”the Skara Cannibal” was convicted in March 2011 of the gruesome killing of his then girlfriend, mother of five, Helle Christensen. After stabbing her to death with a knife, Jonsson cut off her head and other parts of her body, some of which he then ate.
Jonsson showed no remorse during his trial and was found to suffer from severe mental illness by a court-ordered psychiatric evaluation. He couldn't explain why he had killed his girlfriend.

The couple don’t know when they will be released from the clinic as they are both serving non-fixed sentences there. According to the clinic there are inmates who have spent more than 20 years within its walls.

Dare I say that this is one marriage made anywhere but in heaven? Still, I'm sure we'll all agree that the happy (?) couple clearly deserve each other! I just hope that when they argue, as they inevitably will at some stage, neither ever says to the other, "Bite me!" . . .
