The 39-year-old 'Michael F.' killed the 20-year-old model, whom he met on the Internet and who agreed to pose for sadomasochistic photos in July 2008.

Berlin – A German dinosaur expert who beat a woman with a frying pan, strangled her and had sex with her corpse was jailed for 10 years on Thursday.

The 39-year-old, identified only as Michael F., killed the 20-year-old model, whom he met on the Internet and who agreed to pose for sadomasochistic photos with him in July 2008, the court in Potsdam said.

He admitted during his trial that he strangled the woman but said her death was an "accident."

His defence team said the woman had agreed to participate in kinky sex games and called for a three-year sentence for manslaughter.

The prosecution on the other hand, called for a 14 year-sentence for murder and desecration of a corpse.

According to mass circulation daily Bild, the accused said: "I would be happy to have the death penalty."

A spokesman for the court, Frank Tiemann, told AFP: "In addition, the court ordered him to be placed in a psychiatric hospital."

His vicious actions were "the expression of a psychiatric illness. The accused had for a long time had violent and deadly fantasies which came to the surface," experts told the court.
