A man who brutally killed his girlfriend and ripped her intestines out after she screamed her ex-husband’s name during intercourse has pleaded guilty to evade the death penalty.

On Thursday, 26-year-old Fidel Lopez pleaded guilty to murder and sexual battery charges in exchange for a life sentence in Broward County Court in Florida.

He violently killed and molested 31-year-old Maria Nemeth at his apartment in 2015 after getting into a rage of fury when she yelled out her ex’s name during drunken sex.

Fidel Lopez volunteered to plead guilty last month in exchange for a 50-year sentence, but prosecutors declined.

They agreed to the life sentence on Thursday, and his official sentencing is scheduled for August 3rd.

Lopez had called 911 on September 20, 2015, claiming that his girlfriend was couldn’t breathe.

He initially told authorities that the two were having rough sex when Nemeth went into the bathroom, threw up, and collapsed, NBC Miami reported.

Responding officers said they discovered Lopez sobbing in the bathroom next to Nemeth’s body, which was disemboweled.

They added that they saw a significant amount of blood on the floor inside a closet, more blood in the bathroom, and damage to the walls and doors.

A police report added there was also “chunks of bloody tissue” inside the closet.

Investigators initially thought Nemeth might have tried to do an abortion on herself before they quickly learned the truth behind the grisly crime.

Prosecutor Shari Tate said to the court that in addition to ripping out Nemeth’s intestines, Lopez also molested the victim by placing a hair straightener and beer bottles in her vagina.

Nemeth was pronounced dead less than 30 minutes after Lopez’s call.

During Lopez’s questioning, he told police they were having rough sex in the closet, and she had asked him to use the bottles as sex toys.

But he later confessed that he converted into a “monster” when Nemeth said her ex-husband’s name twice.

“She called me the other f**king guy – and said it twice, and she was wrong, and she was confusing me with him,” he said.

An extremely graphic affidavit stated that Lopez left the drunk woman in the closet as he began to smash things around his apartment – including a glass door and punching holes in the walls.

After his tantrum, Lopez came back to the closet where his girlfriend was unconscious and began inserting objects into her vagina.

He also confessed to pulling “internal tissue” from Nemeth’s body as she was passed out.

Afterward, Fidel Lopez carried her body into the bathroom and tried to revive her by splashing water on her face, but the woman never woke up.

He washed the blood off his hands and went out outside to smoke a cigarette.

When Lopez went inside to try to clean up and hide Nemeth’s intestines, he realized she wasn’t breathing and called 911.
