A Massachusetts woman who blamed her obsession with animal corpses and death on Marilyn Manson has been found guilty of murdering her ex-boyfriend in a treehouse.

Julia Enright, 24, was convicted by a jury on Monday of second-degree murder in the 2018 fatal stabbing of 20-year-old Brandon Chicklis.

Prosecutors said Enright had lured Chicklis to a treehouse near her home with the intent to kill him as a “gift” for her new boyfriend.

Enright testified during her trial that she stabbed Chicklis in self-defense as he raped her — and insisted she never meant to kill him.

Under cross-examination, prosecutors asked Enright to read several of her journal entries, including one where she wrote: “I just have an insatiable curiosity to kill a person.”

She had also referenced grave-robbing and collecting animal bones and organs, according to CBS4.

Julia Enright was convicted of second-degree murder in the 2018 fatal stabbing of Brandon Chicklis.

Enright argued that her interests were based on a fixation she had at the time with the singer Marilyn Manson.

After the killing, Enright testified that she called her boyfriend as she fled the treehouse.

She said he helped her dispose of Chicklis’ body a few miles away off the side of a highway in Rindge, New Hampshire, where it was found by a jogger 17 days later.

Her boyfriend hasn’t been charged.

Enright is now facing a mandatory sentence of life in prison with the possibility of parole after 15 years at her sentencing hearing on Jan. 18.
