Brazil footballer's ex-lover 'was fed to dogs'
The missing former lover of a top Brazilian football star was strangled and then fed to dogs, police say.
Eliza Samudio, 25, was a former girlfriend of Bruno Fernandes, goalkeeper for Flamengo, Brazil's most popular club.
He handed himself into police after a warrant was issued for his arrest over her disappearance nearly a month ago.
Mr Fernandes, 25, has denied any wrongdoing, and said he has a "clear conscience".
