The 23-year-old beat his friend to death with an electric guitar and microwave after claiming he was beginning "to change into a zombie."

The El-Paso Times reports that Damon Perry of Prewitt, New Mexico admitted he had been watching the zombie apocalypse show on Netflix. He confessed to killing 23-year-old Chrisopher Paquin because he was beginning "to change into a zombie."

According to the report, police responded to an apartment building last Thursday after a 911 call said a man was running around the complex threatening people with a knife.

Two maintenance workers finally subdued him before police arrived. That's when an officer found Pacquin's badly beaten body inside an apartment.

Perry did admit that he and the victim had been drinking a "large amount of alcohol."

Perry has been charged with an open count of murder and is being held at the Cibola County Detention Center.
