A teenager has been jailed for life after admitting to killing his mother and then raping her corpse.
Kevin Davis murdered Kimberly Hill, 50, in her Texas apartment on 27 March.
In a filmed interview obtained by KZTV, the 18-year-old explains to detectives how he at first attempted to strangle her with a cord from a video game console.
When that didn’t work, he fetched a hammer and hit her on the head.
The footage sees Davis claim to have reached into his mother’s skull to “grab her brain”.
When he is asked what he did next, Davis replies: “Then I had sexual intercourse.”
The detective asks if it was his “first time”, to which Davis says: “Oh yeah, I lost my virginity to a corpse.”
Davis pleaded not guilty to murder in June but admitted his crime just as his trial began on 6 October.
Two days later, a jury handed down a life sentence, Fox 6 reports.
The Corpus Christie Caller writes Davis “smiled, popped his knuckles and stretched” while he was in court.
Davis, who also described having violent sexual fantasies involving his sister, maintained his sanity throughout, the paper reports.
“I’m not mentally disturbed. I’m sane. I know what I did,” he told detectives.
