A south Florida man charged with murdering his girlfriend admitted to disemboweling her with his bare hands after she twice cried out her ex-husband’s name during sex, police said.
Self-admitted “monster” Fidel Lopez, 24, said he flew into a drunken rage after she cried out the other man’s name during rough sex inside of their Sunrise apartment’s closet early Sunday morning, according to a police report obtained by the Sun Sentinel.
In extremely disturbing details, police say Lopez admitted to shattering a sliding glass door, punching holes into a wall and ripping a closet door off its hinges.
He then returned to 31-year-old Maria Nemeth, who was lying unconscious on the floor, and proceeded to sexually mutilate her — first with various objects, then by inserting his arm into her, up to his elbow.
Once inside he said he proceeded to rip out part of her intestines.
Neighbors said they heard a man yelling and loud noises for about two hours coming from the apartment, which the couple had shared for about a week.
Before calling 911 just after 3:30 a.m., Lopez said he carried her body to the bathroom and splashed water on her face in an attempt to revive her. He then washed his hands, had a cigarette break outside and called cops to say his lover was not breathing.
When police arrived at the home, they found him crying for help next to her naked body. Blood and bodily tissue covered the floor and walls. A bottle of tequila and sliced limes were seen in the kitchen.
Lopez initially blamed her death on rough sex. During a court appearance Monday he told a judge, through an interpreter, that he’d been drunk.
He was charged with first-degree murder and ordered held without bond.
Nemeth’s neighbors were stunned and horrified by the news.
They said she worked at the apartment complex as a leasing agent. That’s where she met Lopez.
“Very gentle, very private. Soft-spoken young lady. We all loved her. Very pleasant young lady,” Dan Carter told NBC Miami.
