A student identified as Chico Fierro, has been jailed for 25 years for murdering his girlfriend during rough s*x on Valentine’s Day, Metro UK reports.
Chico Fierro, 26, pleaded guilty to killing Karyna Rodriguez in 2015 following a night of drinking, in which he also took pictures of her unconscious body covered in blood.
Fierro had told police that he and his girlfriend had ‘rough s*x’ and then had fallen asleep but officers later found photos on his phone of her lying on the mattress surrounded by blood.
Ms Rodriguez, who was also a student at New Mexico State University, was found in an apartment at midday the following day.
A preliminary autopsy determined she bled to death from severe internal injuries that apparently took place during sex, the El Paso Times reported.
During a bond hearing in 2015, the defendants lawyer Thomas D. Carter IV explained the pair were ‘in love’ but had engaged in consensual but rough s*x.
But prosecutors told the court that many of Fierro’s ex-girlfriends had told investigators that he had a tendency for using objects during s*x.
Fierro, who also worked as a personal trainer while studying at the University of Texas, had charges of aggravated assault with a weapon dismissed.
