A model admitted to killing and savagely castrating his male lover during court proceedings, according to reports.
He was making the world a better place by neutering his sugar daddy with a corkscrew, he said.
"The world is a better place now," Portuguese underwear model Renato Seabra, 22, told officials, as fashionable Portuguese writer Carlos Castro, 65, lay beaten and strangled to death in his hotel room, according to police testimony today in the gruesome murder.
The confession was the subject of an extended pretrial hearing, which ended with the Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Michael Obus ruling that it is worth to be considered by a jury.
The defendant is hoping to avoid a murder conviction and win, by convincing a jury that he was too crazy to know what he had done to cause the death of Castro was wrong, not even knocking the old man in the head with the hotel room TV and a bottle of wine, or tearing his testicles with a corkscrew as he lay unconscious on the carpet.
His confession to the attack, which was an hour long, certainly sounds deranged.
In his diatribes, he claimed he had castrated his victim to eliminate the "virus" of homosexuality, according to the testimony of Richard Tirelli, a detective.
"He said they were demons, and he had to cut it," said the detective. "Cutting testicles, that would make everything in the world right," the detective said.
