The student said “how wonderful” and chuckled during the footage, then shared the gruesome video on WhatsApp.
And in another video he confesses to the killing, saying “I really killed her”.
Guilherme fled the scene and police were called when his brother arrived home and found the bloodied young woman, whom he did not know, lying unconscious on the floor.
The suspect is reported to have called his family to tell them he would commit suicide.
However, his brother allegedly talked him out of it, encouraging him to hand himself in to the police instead, which he did.
He was then arrested for killing professional gamer Ingrid in the neighbourhood of Pirituba in Sao Paulo, Brazil, on February 22.
During his arrest, Guilherme was asked why he committed the crime, to which he replied: “I wanted to.”

Ingrid went by the nickname Sol and played the game Call of Duty: Mobile professionally for the team FBI E-Sports.
The suspect played on another team, Gamers Elite, under the nickname Flashlight.
It is believed the two met during online games a month prior to the crime.
In an extensive note explaining why he killed Ingrid, Guilherme complained about being tired with life, not having any goals, and not getting on with people in general.
The American Psychological Association has said that exposure to media violence is a significant risk factor for aggressive and violent behaviour.

During questioning at the police station, Guilherme told officers that the victim had “crossed (his) path” and that he had been planning the crime for two weeks.
He also said he had written a 52-page book to explain his motive.
The police obtained a copy of the document, which they are looking into as part of the investigation.
