Brazilian star footballer, Bruno Fernandes de Souza, 28, has admitted that his former girlfriend, Eliza Samundio, 25, was murdered, dismembered and fed to his rottweilers. He is being accused of having Eliza killed to avoid paying child support after she gave birth to his love child.

The goalkeeper who was tipped to play for Brazil at the 2014 World Cup had previously denied any knowledge of what happened to the 25-year-old, claiming Eliza was alive and had left the country. But yesterday, he told a Brazilian court how his best friend Luiz Henrique Romao had paid someone to kill her. He admitted that although he hadn't ordered his former lover to be killed, he had 'accepted' it.

Why do people just throw their lives and hard earned success away such stupidity and greed? May he get all that is due to him for depriving a child his mother in such a gruesome manner all because of money.  Pls continue to read this very sad story after the cut...

It has been alleged that he watched as Santos tortured her and then helped him to chop her body and parts of her corpse was fed to Bruno's pet rottweillers, while the rest was buried in concrete. But he told a court in southeast Brazil, that his cousin, Jorge Rosa, who had witnessed the murder, had told him what had happened. He claimed that after kidnapping Ms Samudio, Romao had taken her to a house in Belo Horizonte where hired killer Santos was waiting.

He said: 'There he held her hands and asked [Romao] to tie them in front of her, and put a tie around her neck and [Romao] even kicked Eliza's legs away. That's what Jorge told me. And that they had chopped up her body, that they had thrown her body for the dogs to eat.'

Before her disappearance on June 4, 2010, Ms Samudio had approached police claiming she had been held captive by Bruno and his associates, who forced her to take an illegal abortion drug. Bruno allegedly put a gun to her head and told her: 'You don't know who I am or what I'm capable of - I'm from the favela.' The baby, Bruninho, was born in February 2010, but the player refused to acknowledge he was the father.

Prosecutors allege that Bruno ordered Ms Samudio's murder after she told him she would take legal action to force him to pay child support. In a statement to police, the footballer's teenage cousin Jorge Rosa claimed he and Romao picked up Ms Samudio and her son from a Rio de Janeiro hotel after she accepted an invitation by the footballer to talk about the paternity claims.

He said they drove her 220 miles to a property in Belo Horizonte which Bruno and his wife used as a weekend retreat, where she was held captive for six days. Ms Samudio was then allegedly handed over to former military policeman Santos, who committed 'barbaric tortures' on her before strangling her to death with a neck tie in front of her four-month-old son.

Santos, who was allegedly paid £8,000 to murder her, played loud music on a stereo to drown out the woman's screams, it is claimed. Edson Moreira, a detective who investigated the case, said: 'His acts were almost impossible to describe without breaking down - images from the worst nightmare you could imagine.'
Police later found Ms Samudio's four-month-old baby in a Belo Horizonte slum, alleged to have been abandoned there by Bruno's wife Dayane. DNA tests later proved the footballer's paternity. The child is now being looked after by Ms Samudio's mother.

Bruno's trial, which began on Monday, is expected to conclude today. If found guilty he could be jailed for up to 41 years.
