“I poured the hot water on her with the hope that she would wake up. When it dawned on me that she is not going to wake again, I decided to cut her up, put her in a sack, and dispose of her somewhere later.“I cut her intestines so that I could put them inside bags. It was because I was very scared, I was perplexed, and I was afraid of the police. I did not do it for any purpose. Nobody sent me to remove her private parts. I did it to cover myself.”
