A Brazilian woman has admitted to shooting her husband and cutting off his limbs before scattering his body parts in plastic bags.
Elize Ramos Kitano Matsunaga, 38, killed her husband, Marcos Kitano Matsunaga, 42, in their apartment in Sao Paulo, Brazil, last month after an argument over his infidelity.
Police found his body parts spread along a road in the city of Cotia, about 20 miles outside Sao Paulo.

Yesterday the chief of the homicide department, Jorge Carrasco, said Mrs Matsunaga had confessed to the murder.
'She confessed spontaneously that she was the perpetrator of the homicide and she also confessed that she acted alone,' he said.
'She reaffirmed that it was a crime of passion. It was a marital argument over infidelity.'
Mrs Matsunaga, a nurse, confessed to shooting her husband in the head and dragging his body to their maid's bathroom, where she dismembered him.
She was caught after security cameras filmed her leaving the apartment building with large suitcases.

Magnotta, who was arrested in an internet cafe in Berlin on Monday, has been linked to a second killing, in which a severed head, hands and feet were left beneath the iconic Hollywood sign in Los Angeles.
Parts of retired airline worker Hervey Medellin, 66, were discovered at the California landmark in January - when Magnotta is thought to have been in the city.
