News Americas, FORT LAUDERDALE, Fl, Fri. July 20, 2018: A Caribbean-born, Florida-based immigrant says demons made him kill his 30-year-old girlfriend last weekend.
Lesley Satenay, 40, who was born in St. Lucia but lives in Eatonville in Orlando, is currently being held without bond at the Orange County Jail on a charge of murder in the second degree.
According to court documents, he claims that he was “awoken by demons” in the wee hours of July 14th and fought them off with a bible, a frying pan and a pipe.
The “demons” he was killing was actually his girlfriend, Krystal Phillips, who friends and family have described as a “great person and great mom” who was “always very respectful.”
Police says they found Satenay on July 14th outside the Eatonville home near West Kennedy and Deacon Jones boulevards with blood on his pants and feet after they received a call to the address Saturday. He immediately admitted his brutal crime to authorities, telling them “the devil was inside his room” prior to the slaying.
He was taken into custody and then charged. 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.
Following his arrest, Satenay reportedly told police that Phillips was an “innocent person” who “did not deserve to die.”
He also claimed he thought Phillips had left the property when he woke up and was convinced a “demon” was in his room. He jumped up and attacked Phillips, noting that he thought he’d “struck a big person.” He further clarified that the demons were “big” but Phillips was “a little person.”
Police said the Orange County Medical Examiner’s Office will determine the official cause of death.
