A disturbed Florida man claims that he was "awoken by demons" before bludgeoning his girlfriend to death with a frying pan, a pipe and a Bible. Police discovered Lesley Satenay, 40, standing outside the Eatonville home of 30-year-old Krystal Phillips on July 14 with blood on his pants and feet. He immediately admitted his brutal crime to authorities and was taken into custody.

Court documents show that the deranged man told police that "the devil was inside his room" prior to the slaying. Police said that Phillips, a mother of one, was found lying dead in a bedroom after having been beaten to death with a pipe. A bloodied Bible and frying pan were found nearby.

Jail records indicate that the suspect was booked just a few hours after police received a call to the Eatonville address early Saturday morning.
