[url=http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21953654/]NYC case highlights African monkey meat ritual
Liberia immigrants charged with smuggling food used in religious practices

[/url]

From her baptism in Liberia to Christmas years later in her adopted New York City, Mamie Manneh never lost the longing to celebrate religious rituals by eating monkey meat.


At the center of the case in federal court is a modest woman with [b]nine children
and a history of domestic discord.[/b]

Manneh is already serving a two-year sentence in state prison for trying to run over a woman she suspected of sleeping with her husband, Zanger Jefferson. If convicted of the federal charges she faces up to five more years in prison and deportation.
