A drunken man killed his friend after mistaking him for a zombie.
Damon Perry claimed he thought his pal Christopher Paquin was "changing into a zombie" following a drunken night watching episodes of 'The Walking Dead', the Daily Star newspaper reports.
Moses Marquez, a spokesperson for New Mexico police, said: "It was one of the absolute worst [crime scenes] I've ever seen - and I've been with the department for 15 years.
"[Perry] seems remorseful. He's had the time to sober up and realise what has happened - and he has expressed remorse."
