8:23 pm on 27 October 2015

An American man who had been watching the hit TV series The Walking Dead killed a friend because he thought the man was "turning into a zombie".

The police say 23-year old Damon Perry used kitchen knives, an electric guitar and a microwave to kill the victim last week.

He then went after other tenants in his apartment complex in the small town of Grants, New Mexico, who managed to call police.

Police said Mr Perry confessed to the killing saying he had drunk way too much and had been binge-watching the popular programme.
