(WHDH)  Federal prosecutors have released pictures showing a closer look inside a house of horrors in Worcester, Massachusetts where police say a man wanted to kidnap, rape, kill and cannibalize children.

Geoffrey Portway is a British citizen who lived in the United States for most of his life. Portway pleaded guilty to solicitation to commit a crime of violence, and possession and distribution of child pornography.

The graphic images show items located in the man's basement. The courts released these pictures just one week before his sentencing.

Among the items pictured were a child-sized coffin, a steel cage, handcuffs and a butcher kit. Several DVDs focusing on cannibalism were also on shelves.
