A crystal meth-abusing Satanist choked and dismembered a law enforcement officer who he met on a gay dating app, and attempted to disintegrate the body in a tub of acid — which was a method he learned from watching “Breaking Bad.”

Fifty-year-old Stefano Brizzi, a former computer programmer at Morgan Stanley, allegedly murdered 59-year-old Officer PC Gordon Semple in his south London residence back on April 1st, the BBC reported.

On Thursday, Prosecutor Crispin Aylett told the jury in opening statements that the case needed people with “broad minds and strong stomachs.”

Brizzi adamantly denied the charges against him, maintaining that the victim accidentally died during a sadomasochistic sex game gone awry.

The police officer, who was referred to as “sexually promiscuous,” had met Brizzi on Grindr and planned to meet him for drug-induced “hot, dirty, sleazy” sex, prosecutors stated. Others were also going to join in for the sex party at Brizzi’s home.

Jurors were informed that Brizzi was reportedly in the middle of strangling Semple when another man rang the doorbell at his house and was ultimately turned away by the man.

When the man, identified only as CD, “pressed the entry buzzer, someone who can only have been the defendant replied over the intercom, ‘We have a situation here. Someone fell ill, but we’re taking care of it. So our party is canceled.’ CD turned around and went home,” according to the Independent.

Neighbors contacted authorities days later after they noticed a “revolting smell” emanating from the residence.

When police arrived, they discovered Brizzi wearing only underwear and sunglasses next to a bath of acid with “globules of flesh” drifting around.

Prosecutors said Brizzi was “obsessed” with the hit TV series “Breaking Bad.” Additionally, the jury were informed he also worships the devil and got the plan to dissolve Semple’s remains in acid after watching the show.

Brizzi allegedly told law enforcement officials: “I’ve tried to dissolve the body … I’ve killed a police officer. I killed him last week. I met him on Grindr, and I killed him. Satan told me to.”

Police said Brizzi confessed to obstructing a coroner by dismembering and getting rid of the body.
