(Scroll down for video) A man was arrested and charged for ripping out his friend’s heart, killing him, according to reports.

Now, a judge has sentenced the California man, to 47 years in prison for brutally mauling and killing his friend after consuming wild mushrooms.

Jarrod Wyatt was sentenced on Thursday, in court, where family and friends spoke about the impact of the death of Taylor Powell.

The 29-year-old mixed martial artist pleaded guilty last month of first-degree murder for killing Taylor Powell, his 21-year-old training partner in 2010.

Wyatt had pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity, but in May, a judge ruled that Wyatt was competent to stand trial.

Prosecutors said that Wyatt pulled his friend's heart and tongue out after both drank psychedelic mushroom tea. Wyatt was arrested after officers found him naked and covered in blood.

There was an increase in zombie type attacks in the U.S. after more people started using bath salts, which is unrelated to psychedelic mushrooms, in order to become high.
