It would seem, to put it lightly, that 24-year-old Fidel Lopez has a temper. This became beyond evident when his girlfriend, 31-year-old Maria Nemeth made the mistake of crying out her ex-husband’s name during sex – twice. That slip-up cost Maria her life.

Neighbors described hearing yelling and loud noises for roughly two hours during the night of horror, all coming from the apartment that the couple had only shared for about a week prior to the incident.

Immediately after it happened for the last time, Fidel flew into a rage that was fueled by alcohol. He shattered a sliding glass door, ripped a closet door off its hinges, and punched holes in walls. Sometime during that melee, Maria had been rendered unconscious.



He returned to her lying still unconscious on the floor and then did the even more unthinkable; he used various objects to sexually assault and mutilate her before then sticking his arm inside of her, up to his elbow, and began pulling her intestines out.

According to Fidel Lopez, just before he called 911 just after 3:30 a.m., he carried her lifeless body to the bathroom and splashed water on her face in a fruitless attempt to revive her before then deciding to wash his hands and have a cigarette.

When he called emergency services, he simply said his lover wasn’t breathing. When police arrived, they found a horrid scene; Fidel was crying next to her body and blood and bodily tissue all over the floor and walls.

Originally, Mr. Lopez told a judge during a court appearance Monday, that her death had been the result of an accident during rough sex. He then added, through an interpreter, that he’d been drunk.

He’s being held without bond on a charge of first-degree murder.
