Alleged Brooklyn threesome killer: ‘I threw my life away for a f—ing lie’

What was supposed to be a sexcapade turned deadly after a woman's boyfriend allegedly bludgeoned and stabbed a ménage à trois participant to death.

Update, June 26: The man accused of the grisly murder of a participant in a Brooklyn threesome “was stunned” when he learned the tryst involving his girlfriend was consensual.

Christopher Membreno said his girlfriend called him alleging that she had been raped in Park Slope on Monday, sparking the revenge killing, according to a new report.

“I threw my life away for a f—ing lie? My life is over because of a f—ing lie?” Membreno asked a New York Daily News reporter through tears.

The 24-year-old told the Daily News that he was high and doesn’t remember much of what happened after the fateful call from his girlfriend. Membreno said his girlfriend sounded “distraught” and “scared.”

“I just wanted some f—ing justice,” Membreno said during the exclusive interview at Rikers Island. “I wanted to hold him until the police got there,” he said, referring to the victim, 20-year-old Manos Ikonomidis.

Membreno told the Daily News that Ikonomidis was fighting him and Membreno had to defend himself, but police said there is no evidence Ikonomidis put up an offensive effort.

Update, June 20: Police arrested Christopher Membreno, 24, just after midnight on Tuesday in connection with the brutal slaying of 20-year-old Manos Ikonomidis of the Gravesend neighborhood of Brooklyn, the NYPD said. Membreno, from Sunset Park, has been charged with murder and criminal possession of a weapon.

Membreno confessed to the revenge killing after his girlfriend called him alleging she had been raped, police told the New York Daily News.

“I want justice for this thing,” Ikonomodis’ mother Maro Mitilinou, 41, told the Daily News, through tears. “Tell me I'm in a nightmare. Tell me I'm gonna wake up.”

The second man, who lives in the Park Slope apartment where the deadly threesome took place, has been identified as 21-year-old Jack Doherty.

The NYPD said there is no evidence that the sexual encounter was anything other than consensual, according to reports.

Police found the 20-year-old man in the first-floor hallway of a building at 16th Street and Seventh Avenue at around 4 a.m., according to police.

He was beaten with baseball bats and stabbed in the chest and back after one of the menage a trois participants started to film the encounter, upsetting the woman involved.

The man was pronounced dead at Methodist Hospital about 20 minutes later. His identity was not immediately released.

"It's something out of a horror movie," 37-year-old neighbor Carol Petersen told the New York Daily News.

"It's horrible. It's a nightmare,” she said.

The resident of the Park Slope apartment where the tryst occurred, a 21-year-old man, drove the woman to her home in Staten Island while the 20-year-old man was left alone.

The woman contacted her boyfriend, who was not involved in the threesome, alleging she had been raped, a neighbor told the Daily News.

The dead man’s girlfriend, not involved in the sexcapade, received a message on Instagram, “your boyfriend f—ed up and will be taken care of,” sources told the New York Post.

Sources told the Daily News that the police did not find any evidence of nonconsensual sex.

The 21-year-old man was leaving the apartment when surveillance footage shows three men chasing him. The victim, unable to flee the building, knocked on an apartment door before he collapsed.

A woman opened the door where the victim left a bloody handprint. 

“He fell into her house, she opened the door… he was apologizing, 'I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry,’” a relative of the woman told the Daily News. “He says, 'They hit me in the head, they hit my head with a bat.' She said there was so much blood just gushing out of him.”

She added that the man asked her to not to call 911.

“He went to stand up, I don't know if he was gonna try and leave or what, [and] collapsed on the floor,” the woman said. “She said his whole body started jerking and then [the police] came, he barely had a pulse.”

Police questioned the 21-year-old man, but he is not a suspect, the Post reported.
