A man who in a drunken rage killed his best friend after he tried to molest him sexually, then hacked off the man’s penis and fed to his dog, was sentenced to eight years in prison by a Mexican court.

According to the El Paso Times, Chihuahua state prosecutors announced the conviction of Mario Alberto Lizalde Reyes, for the 2014 slaying of his friend Mario Hernandez Banda.

Police in Ciudad Juarez said Reyes was walking his dog back when the two men got into a heated argument after Banda had allegedly tried to “touch him sexually.”

Reyes admitted to investigators that he followed Banda, who had gone to urinate in an alleyway, and then shot him at point-blank range.

“I followed him, pulled out my gun and shot him in the head,” Reyes said during a 2014 televised confession.

And he wasn’t finished. Reyes added, “I then took the knife he had on him, chopped off his penis as punishment and put it in a bag.”

Reyes went on to explain that his dog was sniffing around the body, so he decided to let his pooch feast on the detached genitalia.

The following day, Reyes turned himself in after he sobered up.

“He came in the station covered with cuts and bruises, Reyes had said he had gotten into a fight with his stepfather,” a Cuidad-Juarez police spokesman said.

“Reyes then admitted to killing his best friend and stated that although his buddy tried to abuse him sexually, he was still a human being and didn’t deserve to die.”

Prosecutors said Reyes had faced life behind bars for the murder and mutilation of his friend.
