A Sunrise, Florida man pleaded guilty to killing and disemboweling his girlfriend after she allegedly called out another man’s name during sex.
Fidel Lopez, 26, called police in the autumn of 2015, stating that his girlfriend, Maria Lizette Nemeth, had stopped breathing.
Police arrived at Lopez’s apartment to find that Nemeth, 31, had been disemboweled, according to the Sun Sentinel. Her intestines were ripped out and she had been molested with a hair straightener and beer bottles. Blood and tissue matter were all over the apartment, according to KRON4.
Lopez initially told a detective that Nemeth wanted to use beer bottles as sex toys. But, he later confessed he killed her in a fit of jealousy. She allegedly called out her estranged husband’s name during sex.
"She was calling me the other dude's name. She was confusing me with him," Lopez said. "If I was sober, maybe I would have just left the apartment. But I was drunk.”
By pleading guilty, he avoided the death penalty.
