A Florida man says he killed his girlfriend during a tequila-fueled rage after she screamed her ex-husband's name twice while the couple was having sex.
Warning: This article contains graphic descriptions of sexual violence.
Fidel Lopez, 24, told investigators that he became a "monster" when he heard Maria Nemeth, 31, call out for her former lover early Sunday morning while they were having sex in a closet in their Sunrise, Florida, apartment, the Sun-Sentinel reports.
NBC Miami describes the graphic scene, citing the police report:
The report indicates that Lopez flew into a rage, breaking things in the apartment and punching holes in the wall. He went into the closet where Nemeth was lying unconscious, and began to violently assault her, inserting various items, including a beer bottle, a hair flat iron, and both of his fists, into her as she lay unconscious, police said. Lopez admitted to police that he inserted his arm so far into Nemeth's body that he ripped out her intestines.
Lopez called the police at around 3:30 a.m., following the incident. He initially told authorities that Nemeth had vomited and passed out in the bathroom, before he confessed the gory details.
Lopez said that he put Nemeth's body in the bathroom and attempted to revive her by splashing her face with water, CBS Miami reports. When she remained unconscious, Lopez said he panicked and went to smoke a cigarette. He then returned to the bathroom and, upon seeing that Nemeth still was not breathing, called 911.
Police said they found Lopez crying next to his girlfriend's bloody body.
Lopez was arrested and charged with murder.
