According to prosecutors in Portugal preparing to put the pair on trial this October, Malveiro is said to have admitted to an Algarve judge who questioned her after the crime they were inspired by US police series Dexter.

Diogo (pictured below) was strangled to death on March 18 and the woman allegedly threw his torso into the sea from cliffs in the Algarve town of Sagres

Four days later they used a print from a finger they had cut off his right hand to access his mobile and transfer the cash, then waited another 24 hours to dump the rest of his body.

The indictment says they spent the three days between March 20 and 23 sending messages from his Facebook account to fool colleagues and friends into believing he was still alive.

They will be tried for murder, desecrating a body, computer fraud, and using a stolen vehicle.

According to reports, Malveiro took advantage of the fact Diogo was attracted to her to give him an orange juice laced with sedative Diazepam after promising him a lap dance at his home.

They both then allegedly strangled him and dismembering him.

The women allegedly tried to make it look as if he had killed himself by leaving the car overlooking the sea in Cape St Vincent in Sagres but investigators found out their plan after they threw away the torso because it failed to land in the water and ended up on dry land, leaving vital clues.
