A man, Fidel Lopez, has pleaded guilty to murdering and ripping out his girlfriend’s intestines after she screamed her ex-husband’s name during sex. He pleaded guilty to escape the death penalty.
The 26 – year old reportedly pleaded guilty to murder and sexual battery charges in exchange for a life sentence on Thursday.
Lopez, is said to have brutally murdered and molested 31-year-old Maria Nemeth at his Florida apartment back in 2015 after flying into a rage when she screamed her ex-partner’s name during a drunken sexual encounter.
Last month, Lopez pleaded guilty to the charges in the hope of securing a 50-year jail sentence, but prosecutors according to NBC Miami, rejected the offer.
They finally settled on the life sentence on Thursday and will be officially sentenced until August 3. Reports have it that Lopez, had the police to his apartment on the night of September 20, 2015 on claims that his girlfriend was having trouble breathing.
At first, he told investigators that they had been having rough sex when Nemeth went into the bathroom, vomited and collapsed.
On getting to his apartment, officers said they found Lopez crying in the bathroom next to Nemeth’s body, which had been disemboweled.
A large amount of blood was also discovered on the floor inside a closet, blood spattered in the bathroom and damage to the walls and doors. A police report from the time noted there was also ‘several chunks of bloody tissue’ on the floor inside the closet.
