(Newser) – An accused killer admitted in a Versailles court yesterday that she cut her would-be lover's throat during a sexual encounter. “All that comes back to me is images, flashes,” said Jessica Davies, 30, niece of Britain's defense minister. She recounted grabbing a knife to open a wine bottle, getting naked with a 24-year-old date, then cutting his throat after he was unable to achieve an erection, reports the Times of London. "I remember a strange feeling that I interpreted as a blade going in, something profoundly shocking," she added.

“The next thing I remember is telephoning the emergency services, holding the phone with one hand and trying to stem the flow of blood with the other,” she said. “As far as I can remember we were in an extremely relaxed and good mood.” French police have reported that when they arrived on the scene she shouted: "It's me who did that. I'm a monster."
