    Italian says he ate Irish landlord's heart over chess row

    A MAN arrested over the murder of his landlord in a row over a game of chess has told police he ate his victim's heart.

    Police found the bloodied body of Tom O'Gorman, 39, inside his Castleknock, Dublin, home at 1.50am local time on Sunday.



    Italian Saverio Bellante, 34, was arrested at the scene. He was charged on Monday with murder. Police say he admitted his guilt after being arrested on Sunday.
    Mr Bellante told police he killed his victim after a row over a chess move - and then ate his heart.

    The chest cavity had been opened with a knife, but sources told the Belfast Telegraph the victim's heart was still intact.
    "The victim's heart was intact but the post-mortem confirms that a lung was removed from the body and has not been located," the source said.
    Mr O'Gorman, a researcher with the Catholic lobby organisation the Iona Institute, was stabbed with a kitchen knife a number of times but managed to fight off his assailant.

    He was then beaten several times over the head with a dumbbell.
    Originally from Perugia in Italy, Mr Bellante has been living in Ireland for the past two-and-a-half years working for a pharmaceutical company in Dublin.
    He had been living in Mr O'Gorman's house as a lodger over the past number of months.
    A police source said: "It was a very unpleasant scene for our people to walk into. This was a bizarre killing and the dead man sustained substantial injuries to his body."


    Heart, Lung....easy mistake I suppose.

    Well there's a good reason not to have lodgers.
