The Brazilian player was jailed over the murder of his girlfriend, but returned to football after he was freed on a technicality.
He admitted to conspiring with friends who strangled his girlfriend Eliza Samudio and fed her remains to dogs. At the trial, prosecutors said this was done in order for Fernandes to avoid paying child maintenance for his and Samundio’s baby son.
He was found guilty three years later (Brazilian justice is slow) and given a 22-year sentence. Bruno was angry at the part-time model for seeking paternity, and so friends kidnapped her, cut her up into bite-sized chunks, and fed her body to hungry dogs.
However his cousin, who helped carry out the murder, told police the footballer was present when the mother of his child was killed and mutilated.
