CHIHUAHUA, Mexico — A man from Juárez, Mexico was sentenced to eight years in prison for killing his friend, cutting off his penis and feeding it to his dog, officials said Friday.

Mario Alberto Lizalde Reyes was convicted with the murder of his friend, Mario Hernandez Banda, which happened Sept. 27, 2014.

According to a Chihuahua attorney general’s office news release, the men were at Lizalde’s home drinking alcohol for several hours when Hernandez began touching Lizalde in a “sexual manner.”

The men started arguing and officials say Lizalde shot his friend in the head with a revolver, killing him, El Paso Times reported. 

He then used a knife that Hernandez had with him to slice off his friend’s penis and feed it to his dog, officials said.
