A man mutilated his friend’s body after stabbing him to death following a drinking night.
Martin Green, 50, initially denied murdering Stuart Morris but then pleaded guilty.
The victim’s body was found in Green’s flat in Heathcott Road, Saffron Lane, in Leicester, in the afternoon of April 14, Leicestershire Live reports.
The defendant spent the night before the killing drinking at the victim’s home in Russell Street, off Saffron Lane, according to the publication.
The following day at 8am, the two men took a taxi to go to Green’s flat – which is where the murder happened in the afternoon.
The police were alerted by a neighbor and attended the scene at about 5.25pm.
Green used a vacuum cleaner pole and a knife to inflict the fatal injuries on Mr Morris, according to Leicestershire Live.
