A third division football club in Brazil signed a convicted murderer nine years after he had drawn up a plot to have his ex-girlfriend killed.
Bruno Fernandes, who became a star goalie in the Brazilian league and almost played for La Liga in Barcelona, was released from prison last month and placed under house arrest after nearly half a 22-year-old punishment for killing the model, Eliza Samúdio , in 2010.
Prosecutors said they demanded that Fernandes pay for child benefits. Researchers said her body was never found because it was cut to pieces and fed to dogs.
Fernandes, who was convicted in March 2013, was also accused of kidnapping his son Bruninho.

The 34-year-old was released on technical details in February 2017 and played a number of games for Boa Sporte, another club of the lower division. But the supreme court of Brazil ordered him back to prison weeks later.
Fernandes, who left prison on July 19, is currently confined to his home in Varginha, a municipality in the southwestern state of Minas Gerais.
According to the Brazilian news Globo Esporte, Fernandes will join Poços de Caldas, a third division team in Brazil that will compete for the Campeonato Mineiro 2020 tournament.
The conditions of his release showed that the keeper had to find a job within 30 days of house arrest.
It should be up to a judge to give Fernandes a special permit to travel to the city of Poços de Caldas to start training.
His lawyer, Mariana Migliorini, said she expects the judge to finalize Fernandes' work permit this weekend.

Fernandes & # 39; signing has received both cheers and cheers from both fans and opponents.
His deal with Boa Sporte 2017 led to three sponsors ending their relationship with the club.
One person made the decision by Poços de Caldas to board Fernandes on the club's Facebook account.
& # 39; If Brazil was a serious country, this killer should serve his sentence until the last day & # 39 ;, wrote the social media user.
Another person also criticized the second possibility that Fernandes had for nearly ten years after he was found guilty.
& # 39; Congratulations on the initiative! Enjoy giving people a second chance and giving Elisa Samúdio a chance! Oh yes, no trace of her body has been left, right? So complicated right? & # 39;
A supporter, however, welcomed the ideas of the team from far: & # 39; All people deserve a second chance so that they can turn their lives around. & # 39;
