DUBLIN An Italian man allegedly cut open his Dublin landlord's chest and tried to eat his heart following a fight over a chess match.
Saverio Bellante, 34, was charged Monday with murder. Police say he admitted his guilt after being arrested Sunday at the home he shared with Tom O'Gorman, a policy researcher for a conservative Catholic think tank in Ireland.
Pathologists said the 39-year-old victim suffered dozens of severe knife wounds to his head and chest, which had been cut fully open. Ireland's senior pathologist determined that the heart remained, but a lung was missing.

“Uh, what was the bet again?”
An Italian and Irishman walk into a bar...
The bet was only for an arm and a leg.
Jesus Christ! Never bring a rook to a knife fight! Those Italians evidently take their chess seriously.
his landlord eh?
I bet there was more than chess involved here.
Ban the violent chess game now!
Chess kills people.
Overheard after one of them said.. CheckMate!....
The other one said.. EAT ME...
It's rank, not row ....
Just to give the dead his due. He actually worked at a conservative Catholic think tank and opposed gay marriage and abortion. The lunatic had been renting a room for only a few months. Wouldn’t be surprised if the killer was gay and an argument over the subject escalated. Maybe a chess case of queen trying to mount the king.
I suspected there was more involved than chess, but politics wasn’t what I had in mind
