Former Flamengo keeper denies ordering ex-girlfriend's murder
Former Flamengo goalkeeper Bruno has denied charges that he ordered the murder of his ex-girlfriend, but admits that he knew of her death.
Bruno said during the trial in Minas Gerais on Wednesday that a friend hired someone to kill his former girlfriend, model Eliza Samudio, who was allegedly dismembered before being fed to dogs.
The former goalkeeper said he ''was not the one who ordered'' the killing but ''in a way'' feels ''guilty'' for her death.
Bruno was captain of the Flamengo team that won the Brazilian championship in 2009 and made 134 appearances for the club.
That year, Samudio made the first allegations to police that she was pregnant with Bruno's child, and that the player and others kidnapped her and tried to force her to terminate the pregnancy.
He is being charged with ordering Samudio's murder.
