Fidel Lopez has been accused of killing and disemboweling his girlfriend after she called out her ex-husband’s name during sex. The incident between the Sunrise, Florida, man and Maria Nemeth occurred Sunday morning. Police found Lopez, who called 911 at 3:39 a.m., next to Nemeth’s naked body in their apartment, as well as an empty bottle of tequila. Authorities also discovered a “bathroom door [that] was ripped off its hinges and there was blood and tissue in the bathroom, a bedroom closet, and smeared on walls and doors,” according to the Sun Sentinel.
Two people in a neighboring apartment reported hearing a man’s voice yelling and lots of loud noises that lasted for about two hours, police said. During questioning Sunday morning, Lopez initially told investigators that he and Nemeth had been having rough sex and that she went into the bathroom, vomited and collapsed, the arrest report said.
Lopez eventually changed his story.
He became so enraged that she said her ex’s name during sex that he became a self-proclaimed “monster.” He allegedly “left Nemeth in the closet where they were having sex and started breaking things throughout the apartment, smashing the rear sliding glass door and punching holes in the walls.” When Lopez returned to the closest, where Nemeth was unconscious, he brought with him a beer bottle and flat iron, and put them, as well as both his fists, inside her. It gets worse.
Lopez said he inserted his arm up to his elbow and ripped out part of her intestines, detectives said.
He carried her into the bathroom and tried to put water on Nemeth’s face, but she did not wake up.
Lopez told police he then washed the blood off his hands in the bathroom sink, went out on the porch to smoke a cigarette and then started to panic. (Via Sun Sentinel)
