MUNICH - A 25-year-old Iraqi has admitted to the murder of Munich-based celebrity designer Rudolph Moshammer, who was found dead at his luxury home Friday, police said.

Moshammer was killed after an argument over payment of EUR 2,000 for "a sexual act", investigators said.

The multi-millionaire couturier, whose clients included Arnold Schwarzenegger, was strangled with a length of telephone cable.

Police said Moshammer picked up his killer at Munich railway station and took him home in his Rolls-Royce for sex, police said.

The man was arrested at his flat in Munich on Saturday evening after police had matched DNA evidence with a sample on their files.

Moshammer was an eccentric and instantly-recognisable member of the high-society and apparently frequently went in search of young male prostitutes.

"It appears he often took young men home with him," a police investigator said.
